Flushing of inappropriate items is a widespread problem in all facilities, resulting in clogs, burst pipes, flooding, and a huge drain on facility resources. Wipes, washcloths, cloths, paper towels, underpads, diapers, and more have been flushed down toilets. Just because it leaves the toilet bowl, doesn’t mean it’s flushable. These products don’t disperse in water like toilet paper does. Instead, they accumulate over time in pipes and sewers causing catastrophic problems in the facility plumbing system or further down the waste stream in municipal water treatment facilities. Even products labeled “flushable and dispersible”cause problems because they don’t properly disperse.
