Public Works Reminder: No Wipes in the Pipes

No Wipes in the Pipes

No matter what the package says, “flushable” wipes can cause an undue burden on our sewer system. Along with the increased use of disinfecting wipes, the presence of these items in our wastewater can cause serious problems with our infrastructure.

Please be mindful and do not flush these products:

• “Flushable” wipes
• Disinfecting and cleaning wipes
• Sanitary products
• Tissues
• Paper towels
• Napkins
• Cardboard and paper products
• Fabrics
