School Car Wash Fundraisers Banned in Virginia County

For years, car washes have been a fundraising staple for high school sports teams, marching bands and youth groups.

Just get some kids together with buckets and soap, rent out a parking lot, put up a sign and hope it doesn’t rain.

But in Arlington, Va., you also have to hope the government doesn’t catch you.

Charity car washes and car wash fundraisers are now banned on school property there, after the Department of Environmental Services issued new rules for stormwater and water runoff.

Find a soap that is biodegradeable and tell the idiots buzz off. Go to court if necessary,i'm fairly sure they could find a lawyer to take their case cheap or free.
