CoVid-19 and Wipes – Wipes Clog Pipes!

If you are using any type of wipe (whether or not is says “flushable”), please do not flush them down the toilet; please dispose of them in your trash can.

These items can clog you household plumbing, the pipes in the street and the critical equipment at the treatment plant.  Products that might seem safe to flush down the toilet, such as: personal care wipes, other personal care products, gloves, dental floss, paper towels, and grease, don’t’ dissolve quickly – or at all – in water.  Remember that wipes clog pipes!

In the meantime, please make sure to dispose of personal care products, cleaning supplies, grease and other household waste properly.  For waste disposal options please visit: http://www.agawam.ma.us/288/Trash-Recycling

The Toilet Is Not A Trash can
