Autobell® Car Wash employees from its North Charleston, SC, location as well as the company’s home office and other stores participated in a November 3 cleanup on James Island, SC, organized by the James Island Pride committee.
The 11-person Autobell® contingent spent the morning scouring a section of Camp Road between Riverland Drive and Folly Road and gathering detritus that otherwise may have found its way into James Island Creek and eventually the Ashley River and out to sea. Their effort garnered an estimated 600 lbs. of debris, including such notable finds as construction barrels, tractor and car tires, and large plastic automotive fragments. The take included eight bags of trash and five bags of recyclable material.
The Autobell® volunteers were on the clock with their employer during these volunteer hours and were also treated to meal vouchers by the company. The James Island Pride organization provided lunch and water to the volunteers.
“As a car wash, Autobell® is really in the water management business, and we understand the urgency of conserving and protecting our water resources,” stated Autobell® District Manager Nate Perrell. “It was encouraging to work alongside other community members in an effort to preserve the local environment.”
Autobell® participates in numerous waterway cleanups within the company’s five-state area as part of its ongoing commitment to environmental preservation. Additionally, all Autobell® locations treat 100 percent of wash water used and recycle up to 100 percent through the use of technologically advanced equipment, as well as practice other on-site water conservation procedures.
