Please do not flush cleaning wipes, paper towels, rags, grease, etc. down toilets.  These materials do not breakdown, they build up in pipes creating blockages in sewer service lines and main lines preventing water flow through pipes.  These materials also create issues with City lift station pumps, which are very costly to repair.  If packages of wet wipes and or cleaning wipes state they are “Flushable” they are not.  The only paper material that should be flushed is “Toilet Paper”.

 

Thank you!
