What NOT to Flush!
The Public Works Department would like to remind residents that many materials flushed or poured down a drain can harm the pipes that are connected to the sewer system and cause sewer backups in your home. Many of us are having lots of people using our toilets this weekend, so please be careful. I guess having a sign up of what not flush would be tacky . . . but here is the list!
Basically, the only thing you should ever flush down the toilet is human waste and toilet paper. Keep the following out of the toilet: disposable diapers, tampons and tampon applicators, sanitary napkins, cotton balls and swabs, dental floss, condoms, cleaning wipes of any kind, facial tissue, bandages and bandage wrappings, automotive fluids, paints, solvents, poisons and hazardous waste.
Do not flush medications down the toilet. Take them to an approved prescription drug take-back site or event.
Never pour grease down your sink drain! Grease in sewer pipes cause maintenance problems for property owners and the Township. And thanks to Joan Cox - never put down Kitty Litter either!
There you have it. Enjoy your potty safely. :)
