Non-Flushable Material Information

Wipes Clog Pipes

*Just because something is labeled "flushable" does NOT mean that it is also dispersible. Toilet paper, a flushable product, will break down and pass through the sewer system... "flushable" wipes will NOT.

*"Flushable wipes" accumulate in the sewer lines and customers' laterals causing blockages that are costly for both homeowners and municipalities.

*Blockages can cause damage to homeowners' property and create environmental issues.

*Cleanup costs ultimately get passed along to the customer.

*Another major cause of sewer blockages and spills is grease.

*Cooking grease should be poured into a container and put into the trash when cool.

*Wiping down cooking pots and pans before washing can help keep grease out of your sewer lines.

*Sewer backups and spills can cost homeowners thousands of dollars in repairs and cleanup. Keep grease OUT of your drains.
