[ARCHIVED] Do Not Flush "Flushable Wipes" Down Toilet, They Can Cause Sewer Blockages

City of Apple Valley Logo

Toilet paper is the only product of this nature you should flush.

When you use the toilet, feel free to flush down toilet paper.  However, the so-called "flushable wipes", will flush down the toilet, but won’t break down like toilet paper.  The wipes often catch on imperfections on the inside of the sanitary sewer lines.  The result is that more wipes catch and get stuck in the same place, eventually blocking the sewer line.  If a sewer main becomes plugged, it can cause extreme damage to the homes that are downstream of the plug.  Please do not dispose of "flushable wipes" in the toilet.
