Wipes labeled as "flushable," disinfecting wipes, paper towels and similar products should not
be flushed down toilets.
These products do not break down and can clog pipes in homes, sewers and sewer system pumps.
These clogs lead to sewage backups and overflows. Such products should be thrown in the trash.
What can be flushed? The three p's: pee, poop and (toilet) paper.
