Don't Flush



Ignore the Hype: Don't flush a Wipe! Image "no symbol' around a picture of wipes, paper towels and flushable wipes, and image of a toilet followed by an image of toilet paper with the words "toilet paper only" underneath and a large green "check box".


Just because the package says “flushable” doesn’t mean it’s true. Many items marketed as disposable and/or flushable do not degrade like toilet paper and they wind up clogging pipes, tangling pumps in lift stations and causing messy sewer backups into streets, businesses and homes.

Our sewers are designed to dispose of very specific things. Using your toilet for disposal of many modern products will often result in blockages. The drains that connect your home or business to the main sewer line are only meant to carry water, toilet paper and human waste.
All wipes should be placed in the trash.
