A Reminder About “Flushable” Wipes

Important Reminder from the Borough:
Please don’t flush baby wipes.
Manufacturers will often label their product as being “flushable”, but that doesn’t mean that the product is safe for your plumbing system. Baby wipes don’t break down in water the same way that toilet paper does, making them much more likely to get stuck somewhere in the pipes and accumulate until water and waste cannot pass through. This could result in expensive and damaging back-ups in your home, under the roads and at the treatment plant.
