Do not flush wipes down the toilet

Toilets Are Not Trashcans imageDuring these uncertain times with temporary shortages of personal hygiene products, such as toilet paper, individuals are turning to ‘flushable wipes.’ Unfortunately, these wipes are not truly flushable.  Products such as wipes, paper towels, and personal hygiene products should not be flushed. These products do not break down the way toilet paper does in our sewers. These products tend to create clogs which can lead to sewer backups and costly repairs. Remember, the only things that should be flushed down a toilet are pee, poop and toilet paper.
