Can the Wipes

Many household cleaning products are labels and marketed as “disposable” but should not be flushed down the toilet. These include:

  • disinfecting wipes
  • baby wipes
  • mop refills
  • paper towels
  • towelettes

These products don’t dissolve, which can clog pipes and cause expensive - and time consuming - repairs for homeowners. These products also clog public sewer pipes and pump station equipment leading to sewer backups. Save yourself and your wastewater utility by placing wipes, rags and towels in the trash, not the toilet!


Did you Know?

Clean Water Services has invested in new pumps that cost 10-20% more but are better equipped to handle wipe products. The overall cost is actually less because we save money and time on maintenance and repairs caused by clogs.
