Wipes Clog Pipes

Town and Village Residents:


Due to the shortage of toilet paper products, it is critical that you do not flush any products down the toilet other than toilet paper.

Baby wipes are the number one reason for a sewer backup. If you are using baby wipes, please dispose of them properly in the trash.

When the wrong thing is flushed, results can include costly back-ups on your own property or cause problems on the sewer and water treatment system. Rags, debris and wipes are the biggest sources of sewer overflows and backups.

Here is a list of items that should never be flushed:

  • Disposable wipes (even if marked “flushable”)
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Paper towels
  • Dental floss
  • Face-cleaning pads
  • Cotton balls or ear swabs
  • Condoms
  • Diapers
  • Cooking grease
  • Pills

Toilets are meant for only one activity, and you know what we are talking about!
