This sums up the purpose of our association. As a nonprofit organization, we exist to serve the professional carwash operators in New Jersey and to promote the use of an environmental friendly professional carwash instead of home driveway washing.

Fundraising Car Wash Participation Form

CWONJ has been very active in the past representing the interests of carwash operators in Trenton and assisting governmental agencies for legislation such as the recent drought emergency. We had a very proactive role and sent out publicity kits and information to all our members to educate their customers on ways to conserve water.

The association has four general membership meetings each year and is a member of the Northeast Regional Carwash Convention which sponsors an annual Fall regional trade show.

CWONJ Giving Reaches $47,000 For Children’s Specialized Hospital

UNION, NJ — The Car Wash Operators of New Jersey (CWONJ) played some great golf and raised $5,000 for the Children’s Specialized Hospital here on Monday, August 4. To date, the CWONJ has raised $47,000 for the hospital.

A picture-perfect day of golf was capped off by a silent auction and raffle that put a huge smile on the face of Children’s Representative Janelle LoBello. “This association has been such a supporter of the hospital for many years, and the money raised helps us help so many really deserving children and their families,” said LoBello. “We are so thankful to the CWONJ.” read more….
