#WipesClogPipes - "Flushable" Wipes Should Not Be Flushed

Did you know that “flushable wipes” are not really what they claim to be?

Anything other than human waste and toilet paper can clog our sewage system and costs ratepayers money to be removed.  The clogs can cause untreated sewage releases to the environment.  Essex Junction removes several tons of unnecessary waste per year from our treatment facility including flushable wipes, dental floss, feminine hygiene products, diapers, paper towels, and cotton swabs and so much more.

Please be mindful of what you flush-it will make the difference for the environment and your wallet!
