The toilet is not a trash can! Keep wet wipes out!

An effect of more people using wet wipes to "stop the spread" of the Coronavirus and COVID-19 is those wet wipes are ending up in the MWA sewer system. Remember, the toilet is not a trash can! While some wet wipes are marketed as “flushable” items, don’t believe it! Wet wipes actually are NOT flushable, because they do not “break up” like traditional toilet paper. According to a Consumer Reports article on “Think twice about flushing wet wipes,” the bottom line is this: “Treating soiled wet wipes like disposable diapers by tossing them in a lined wastebasket will definitely keep your drain and sewer pipes clear.” For a demonstration on why you should not flush wet wipes, see the "Learn More" link.
