Wipes, diapers and other non-dispersable materials clog sewer pipes and pumps. This causes increased operations and maintenance costs for all customers. Additionally, this can cause damage to pumps and sewer backups. Just because a product is “bio-degradable” does not make it safe to flush. Most “bio-degradable” products like wipes do not readily “disperse” upon flushing and actually remain in a solid-state. Unlike toilet paper which is readily dispersable and dissolves quickly into the waste stream.
Protect your pipes! Never flush wipes, feminine hygiene products, dental floss, cotton swabs, cigarette butts, hair, or anything other than the 3 Ps: Pee, Poop, & Toilet Paper.
