  • The new Snell Auto Wash was built with the environment in mind: no hydraulics used, which eliminates oil spills and water waste contamination; more energy-efficient equipment; Water Reclaim System ensures that 30-40% of water used is recycled. The building was also made from recycled plastic materials.
