Please be mindful – DO NOT flush disposable wipes down your toilet
They can clog your sewage lines and septic system fields, requiring expensive repair!
A New York Times article warns that “Americans Coping With the Coronavirus Are Clogging Toilets” due to disinfectant wipes and paper items other than toilet paper being flushed. From the article: “Flushable wipes are not truly flushable,” said Jim Bunsey, chief operating officer of the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District. “They might go down the drain, but they do not break up like regular toilet paper.”
Even facial tissues can clog a toilet unless used in small amounts. Hashtag #WipesClogPipes.
