Everything that goes down the drain eventually reaches the wastewater treatment facility. When items that should be thrown away are flushed down the drain instead, they have to be filtered, screened, and often manually removed from the system which costs time and money. Please keep your wastewater system healthy and working efficiently by follow these tips.
These items should NEVER be flushed:
• Flushable Wipes*
• Cotton Balls and Swabs
• Wet Wipes
• Cleansing Pads
• Baby Wipes
• Toilet Roll Rubes
• Women’s Sanitary Items
• Paper Towels
* Flushable Wipes should NOT be flushed down in toilets.
Even though they are advertised to be "just like toilet paper", they do not disintegrate in the sewer system and can cause major blockages.
