The City of Federal Way along with the Puget Sound Car Wash Association (PSCWA) offer environmentally-friendly alternatives for fundraising car washes.

The PSCWA offers a charity car wash program where a charity can cheaply purchase tickets for a commercial car wash and re-sell them at a higher price. The tickets are usually purchased for $2, printed with the charity name and sold for $6 to $8 each. To learn more, call (800) 509-WASH.

The city offers environmentally safe car wash kits that pump wastewater into the sanitary sewer system, keeping contaminants out of local streams and lakes. There is no charge to borrow the kits. A one-week notice is needed to borrow a car wash kit. To learn more, call (253) 835-2752.
