San Mateo County - Do NOT Flush Wipes - 2020-03-26

Article Source:  San Mateo County CA

                                                              Who's Flushing Wipes and Paper Towels Down the Toilet?

We've seen an increase in reports of sewer backups recently so let's help out our public works and wastewater plant crews and the environment by remembering to dispose properly. 

• NEVER flush wipes or paper towels down the toilet 

                         • All wipes (including flushable wipes!) go in the TRASH 

• All paper towels go in the COMPOST 

While it's important to wash hands and keep surfaces clean to prevent the spread of COVID-19, let's not create another problem with a backup of wipes and towels in our pipes!
