Please Do Not Flush Wipes

No-Flushing-Wipes

Please Throw Sanitizing Wipes into the Trash

With more people using hand-sanitizing wipes or baby wipes to protect against Covid-19, please know these wipes should not be flushed down the toilet.  Dispose of the wipes in your trash. 

During this time when we are washing our hands and wiping down surfaces more frequently, the Yachats’ wastewater system can be greatly affected by the disposal of wipes into sewage systems. You can help avoid sewer overflows and extra work at the sewer lift stations by disposing of these wipes in the trash rather than flushing them away.

Even though some of these disinfectant wipes products indicate they are "flushable," they still can clog pipes and impact the wastewater plant efficiency.

Help everyone in the community by ensuring that our pipes continue to flow effectively.
