Look for 50% Off Coupon

Wash Smart and Protect Puget Sound

As a way to thank you for choosing the most salmon-friendly way to wash your car, Seattle Public Utilities and the Puget Sound Car Wash Association are offering discounts at local area car washes.

Look for “Bert’s Car Wash Coupon” in the next issue of @ Your Service in your May or June utility bill. This coupon gives you 50 percent off your next car wash at any Puget Sound Car Wash Association member location, including Elephant Car Wash in Seattle and Burien. Go to for a full list of locations.

When you wash your car on the street or driveway, the soap, automotive fluids, and roadway dirt from the vehicle go straight into nearby storm drains that lead directly to lakes, streams, and Puget Sound. This harms fish and wildlife. The best option is to take your car to a commercial car wash that reclaims the wash water several times before sending it to the sewer system for treatment.
