Ol Miner EXPRESS Car wash has been around for years but an ownership change three years ago has radically improved the business. Aware of the impact carwashes can have on the environment, the new owners immediately upgraded equipment to maximize efficiency. Their state-of-the-art machinery allows them to save on soap, water and energy while delivering a stellar wash and rinse. Additionally, biodegradable soaps are concentrated so low quantities are required. In addition, some water is recaptured to be used elsewhere in the facility.
Look up while waiting in the pay lane and you’ll see over 105 solar panels to offset electrical use – on a bluebird day, virtually 100% of the electricity required to run the car wash is offset by solar panels! Additionally, Ol’ Miner is trying to modify daily habits to make our environment more sustainable. As customers clean out their cars, cans and bottles are collected and delivered to Recycle Utah every week. Most recently Ol’ Miner eliminated bottled water for staff and installed a 5 gallon jug for reuse.
Whether your carwash is routine or occasional from salt, dirt or bugs, Ol Miner EXPRESS can make you feel good about keeping your car clean. They are committed to operating in an environmentally friendly and sustainable manner and we are delighted they are a Green Business member.
