Think Before You Flush!

What happens when you flush those "flushable" wipes?

Sewer Clog

When flushed, wipes and other products cause sewer blockages, backups, overflows, and can cause damage to our infrastructure. 

These items have caused havoc on individual sewer lines and the Borough’s collection system since the arrival of COVID-19.

 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.
