Let's face it, from here on out all mobile truck washing operators must comply with environmentally accepted washing procedures. That means "NO" waste-wash-water runoff ever. Yes, complying with such rules and environmental regulations can be tough, but it is now a necessity, not an option. Not only are customers potentially liable for run-off from their property, but there are serious fines, and even jail time for mobile fleet truck washing operators who do not follow the rules. One option for a mobile truck washing team or business is to clean the vehicles on a mat which collects the wash water affluent, pre-treats and recycles it, and then anything left over can be taken to the appropriate location for processing.
Now then it might make sense to find a used environmentally complaint washing rig at a fair price, one which is in decent condition with all the environmental equipment. Below is just such a unit, if it fits your needs.

Each of our “mobile” units is fully self-contained with the ability to recapture, recycle and reuse the wash water. Mobile units carry everything we need to provide complete washing and detailing services including water, water containment equipment, cleaning supplies (environmentally compliant) & a recycling system (customized for the operator's needs).
Theautomated closed-loop systems allow us to wash a vehicle, collect all of the residual water, recycle/clean the water (via reverse osmosis) and reuse the water to wash additional vehicles. This systems are able to monitor, water turbidity, ph, total dissolved solids (TDS) and water use.
The Snipes & Wipes System and customized recycling equipment has the ability to far exceed the use for which it was originally intended; as a result they have acquired the services of industry experts to help assess our ability to re-purpose our systems for additional applications. Applications include, but certainly not limited to; automobile and heavy equipment manufacturing/wash processes, automatic car wash systems, wastewater disposal units and automotive paint shops, just to name a few.
The Truck Wash Guys endorse this system as the right choice for environmentally complaint washing and cleaning of transportation, and construction equipment.
2 fully equipped 38ft trailers. The recycler is automated with very minor manual intervention. Available for Big Rig, Trailer, Camper, Car or Heavy Equipment Washing.
With this unit - the Truck Wash Operator or Trucking Company washing their own units has everything they need to stay compliant, without needing to build an enclosed truck wash which could easily run well over a million dollars, perhaps two by the time it is completed. The system is easy to use, and will keep the company out of regulatory problems.
