What Should Not Go Into the Sanitary Sewers
Reminder for Residents
The only thing that you should be flushing down the toilet or drain is toilet paper.
Here is a list of items that you shouldn't flush:
- Wipes (remember, there is no sewer safe flushable wipe, no matter what the packaging says!)
- Paper Towel
- Hair, Lint, or Dirt
- Feminine Hygiene Products, including Tampons
- Cotton Swabs or Pads
Basically, if it's not water or toilet paper, do your best to keep it out of our sewer system!
What happens if a large amount of these items get flushed? It causes problems for everyone and could result in a hefty plumbing bill!
