Recycling Center


Speedy Shine is proud to offer a recycling bin for all of your paper, glass, metal and plastic you may need to dispose of when cleaning out your car.




Water Reclaim


We reclaim and treat the water used at Speedy Shine which reduces our water usage by 50%. We use an average of 38 gallons per car. Home car washing uses between 80 to140 gallons of water per car. http://environment.about.com/od/greenlivingdesign/a/car_wash.htm


 Speedy Shine is a member of WaterSavers certified by the International Car Wash Association.  WaterSavers members must use less than 40 gallons of fresh water per vehicle and strive to reduce water usage throughout the wash process.




Speedy Shine uses environmentally friendly chemicals and soaps.


Energy Usage


Speedy Shine uses variable frequency drives to reduce electric consumption by our equipment.


Soap Runoff


Speedy Shine captures all soap and chemicals which are filtered by a sand and oil separator prior to discharging in the Colorado Springs sewer system. Home washing discharges soap into the storm water which pollutes our creeks and waterways.
