Flushable to FATBERG

Urgent Request!

Are you cleaning up after cats or kids?
Please do not throw “flushable” cat litter or disposable wet wipes into your toilet. These items may look “flushable” but they do not dissolve or disintegrate.
They cause blockages and other problems in sewer systems, and these problems are very expensive to fix, which will cause the cost of your sewer rates to increase.
So please be considerate and throw the “flushables” into the trash, or these items will wind up costing you and other sewer users a lot of money.
Thank you.

Don’t risk a sewer BACKUP!

SEWER BACKUP
Are you using wipes and paper towels to clean or disinfect? Toilet paper is made to disintegrate. Wipes and paper towels should go in the trash, because they are NOT “flushable.” They won’t breakdown. They will tangle into a big lump and block your sewer lines. If a pipe in your neighborhood is blocked, sewage could back up into your house which means a very expensive $$$ mess for you.
