Coronavirus Clogs: The Toilet is not a Trash Can!

Wet wipes, Clorox wipes, rags, and other non-dispersible items (those things that do not break down naturally) are troublemakers for plumbing and sewer lines, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the increased use of wipes, there is a rise in the chances for sewer spills and overflows attributed to these items being flushed and entering the MWA sewer system. Wet wipes, Clorox wipes, rags and the like not only clog sewer lines, but they can damage equipment and processes at the MWA Water Reclamation Facilities. Please do not flush these non-dispersible items down the toilet. Remember, the Toilet is not a Trashcan! For more information, including grease education about not pouring fats, oils, or grease down the sink, check out our "Learn More" link below.
