Protect Our Pipes

The Housing and Water Departments remind residents to please refrain from flushing baby wipes, personal hygiene products, paper towels, food, grease, paint, solvents or other toxic chemicals down the toilets or sink drains. These kinds of products and waste can create large blockages in the sewage pipes, which leads to increased maintenance costs, messy and costly overflows or backups, as well as potential health and environmental hazards.

Dispose of your waste appropriately. Solids should be placed in your regular curbside trash. Food waste can be composted or placed in your trash as well. Paints, solvents and other toxic chemicals should be taken to the dump in non-leaking containers for safe disposal. Let’s keep our infrastructure and environment safe and sound.
