May 05, 2015
Autobell Car Wash Inc., based in Charlotte, NC, received the 2015 Sustain Charlotte Award in the Water Quality & Conservation category. Sustain Charlotte is a nonprofit advocacy group dedicated to educating, engaging, and uniting citizens to solve local sustainability challenges.
Autobell has been widely recognized for its water treatment and conservation efforts by utility, media, conservation, and civic organizations; this is the 12th environmental award presented to Autobell since 2000. All Autobell stores treat 100% of wash water used and recycle 80-100%. In 2007, Autobell began installing Aqua Bio 100% reclaim water treatment systems in selected stores where feasible. Via this biotechnology, organisms break down and consume oil, dirt, and other pollutants to produce clean, clear water for reuse.
Founded in 1969 in Charlotte by the late Charles Howard Sr., Autobell remains privately held and operated by the Howard family and now has 69 locations in North and South Carolina, Virginia, and Georgia.
