Apple has confirmed it will start charging for the clean up of its Apple Car Wash in Florida, but it is not yet clear how much it will cost to do so.
The company said in a statement on Wednesday that it would start charging after its employees clean up the cars in the future, although it did not say how much.
“We have been working with the City of Clearwater and local residents to determine the cost of the cleaning and maintenance, and it will be available once it is determined that the cost is feasible,” the company said.
Apple also said it would install a “bulk storage” system to protect its car wash.
According to the US Environmental Protection Agency, the US has 1,000 Apple Car Washes in operation.
A spokesperson for Clearwater Mayor Rick Smith told ABC News it was not possible to estimate the cost.
However, the City Council voted in October to begin charging for clean-up, which could cost as much as $20,000 per car wash at some locations.
In the statement on Apple’s website, the company thanked the city for its work.
“[We] look forward to working with them and the public on a detailed cost estimate of this facility and ensuring the City is reimbursed for the cost, and we are committed to protecting the environment,” the statement said.
“It is important to note that we are using a bulk storage system, where vehicles are stored for up to a year, to protect against any potential environmental impact.”
The city said it has already invested $1.5 million to install a new car wash system.
