Keep Wipes Out of the Pipes!
Smart food disposal and refraining from putting items labeled “flushable” down the drain can help protect our environment, our sources of drinking water and your own property. Dumping grease, fats, and oil is not only illegal, but it can also cause sewage back-ups and flooding. Wipes labeled “flushable” don’t break down in the system and can also cause blockages that lead to sewage back-ups which can damage personal and public property. Do your part to prevent such incidents by following these guidelines for proper food disposal. Trap your grease, fat, and oil – then toss it in the garbage!
