Don't Flush Wipes or Other Garbage
Certain materials flushed down toilets can damage sewer systems, wastewater treatment operations, or private septic systems, even when they are labeled as flushable. Correcting the damage is expensive, so do not flush any of the items listed below, no matter how small. Please throw them in the trash.
- baby wipes
- disinfectant wipes
- personal hygiene products
- any paper products other than toilet paper (e.g., paper towels, facial tissues, paper napkins)
