Sewer Department – Wipes CLOG pipes

Image result for wipes clog pipes sign

Many household cleaning products are labeled and marketed as“flushable” but that doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to flush them down the toilet.  Flushable Does Not = Biodegradable.

Place these items in the TRASH and NOT the Toilet:

Disinfecting wipes Shop Towels
Paper Towels Towelettes
Baby Wipes Mop Refills

 

PREVENT COSTLY BACKS

Remember, even if they say “flushable“, disposable wipes & towelettes clog sewer pipes!
