The Car Wash Operators of New Jersey
was founded in 1951 in Newark, New Jersey. The logo on the association’s seal has Excellence, Professional, Quality, Service. 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.

NJ Minimum Wage Increases to $8.44/Hr.
On January 1, 2017, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development (NJDOL) increased the state’s minimum wage from $8.38 to $8.44 per hour.
This past summer, both the Senate and Assembly passed a bill that would have increased the minimum wage to more than $15 per hour by 2021. Governor Chris Christie vetoed this bill but proponents are seeking to place the measure on the ballot for voter approval in the fall of 2017.
