A reminder from the state Department of Environmental Conservation to not flush certain products down the toilet.
The reminder includes :
- baby wipes
- disinfectant wipes
- personal hygiene products
- any paper products other than toilet paper (e.g., paper towels, facial tissues, paper napkins)
Flushing them can damage sewer systems, wastewater treatment and private systems, even when they are labeled as flushable. Repairs can be costly.
