What Not To Flush; Prevent Clogs And Help Our Cities Infrastructure

Flushing something down the toilet doesn’t make it go away – you’re just moving the problem somewhere else.  The City of Superior’s Environmental Services – a Division of Public Works – reminds everyone that proper disposal of wastes and garbage can prevent problems for both you and the city.

While it’s well-known that hazardous waste should be disposed of properly and not down the drain, there are still some items that residents unknowingly believe are safe for the sewer system.

Here is a list that the City of Superior asks you not to flush:

  • Baby Wipes – even if they say “flushable”
  • Feminine Hygiene Products
  • Rags and Towels
  • Sponges
  • Cotton Balls
  • Cotton Swabs
  • Diapers
  • Dental Floss
  • Cigarette Butts
  • Rubber Items – such as gloves
  • Food Labels
  • Candy Wrappers
  • Fat, Oil, Grease
  • Kitty Litter

The toilet is not a trash can.  Once these items are flushed – they disappear from your home, only to cause problems in sewer lines, filters, and treatment systems.
