Think Before You Flush!
Wipes clog pipes! Even the "flushable" ones! The materials in these wipes do not dissolve. Instead, they clog up sewer lines, causing gross messes, big plumbing bills for residents, and even damage to the Borough's equipment and sewer lines. Toilet paper is the ONLY product that should be flushed. All types of wipes (even those labeled "flushable"), paper towels, tissues, napkins, menstrual products, and diapers don't break down like toilet paper and can get stuck in your pipes and our pipes, causing clogs and sewage backups.
