Flushing Facts

Flushing Facts - Protect Your Pipes
The package says "Flushable", it must be true.....
FALSE!  None of the items listed below break down in the wastewater pipes of your home or on the way to the wastewater treatment plant. So what happens when you flush them down the drain? Since they don't break down, they can tangle and clump together, forming clogs that cause sewage to back up into your home or neighborhood. Even items labeled "flushable" are not safe for the wastewater system. Properly dispose of these products in the trash (where they belong) before they cause unpleasant and expensive problems.
