Toilets Are Not Trash Cans

With people increasing their household cleaning to prevent COVID-19 and flushing disinfecting wipes down the toilet, the sewer systems are under additional strain. Putting any kind of wipe in the toilet rather than in the trash can cause clogs in your house pipes and sewer spills, increasing maintenance costs for both you and the City and ultimately harming the environment.

As you clean your house, please dispose of all wipes and towels in the trashcan.
