With the increase in sanitary product purchases, we want to remind everyone of the harm that could be caused by flushing items other than toilet paper down the toilet.
EVEN IF A PRODUCT SAYS “FLUSHABLE”… IT’S NOT!!!
***Flushing anything other than bodily waste and toilet paper may clog your system, causing sewage to backup into your home and/or causing the entire wastewater system harm. This could result in millions of dollars in damages to your treatment system!***
If it's not toilet paper, throw it in the garbage.
We all want to stay healthy and reduce the risk of infection for ourselves and others in our community. Help do your part by only buying what you need, and leave some for your neighbors.
