Do’s and Don’ts of Flushing

Important Information About “Flushing”

People are flushing all kinds of things down toilets.  Some paper products and Wipes are advertised as “flushable” but they are not.  They will flush down but they don’t flush out.  Wipes do not decompose. They get caught in wastewater treatment plant screens and filters – and cause costly repairs.

Below is a DO NOT FLUSH LIST to keep in mind:


*Paper Towels

*Facial Tissue

*Cotton Swabs

*Baby & Adult Wipes

*Women’s Hygiene Products

*Gum & Candy Wrappers

*Facial Pads

*Dental Floss


*Cotton Balls



…And Many More!
