Know what to and what NOT to flush down your toilet

March 26, 2020
From Iowa Dept. of Natural Resoruces , Toledo Chronicle, Tama News-Herald

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is reminding Iowans of the importance of flushing only toilet paper and human waste down toilets.

The Department recognizes the temporary shortage of toilet paper products during the Covid-19 outbreak, but warns items such as flushable wipes, disinfecting wipes, surface cleaning wipes, baby wipes, even though advertised as flushable, are not recommended for disposal by flushing down a toilet. Diapers, paper towels, tissues and feminine hygiene products should also not be flushed down toilets.

Even though these products may not clog your sewer system at your residence, when deposited together, in an entire community, can pose a serious risk of overwhelming a community's sewer system.
