As customers take steps to clean their homes and businesses to slow the spread of COVID-19, CFPUA reminds you that no products, other than toilet paper, should be flushed down a toilet.

Flushing products like sanitizing wipes or paper towels can clog toilets, potentially damaging fixtures and leading to costly plumbing repairs. These products can cause even bigger problems for our community’s wastewater system, where severe blockages can cause sewer main breaks and overflows.

Even wipes marketed as “flushable” are not toilet-friendly.

Dispose of all non-toilet paper products properly by throwing them in the garbage.
