No Wipes in the Pipes

Posted On Saturday March 21, 2020

The Municipality of Meaford would like to remind you to avoid sewer backups and protect your sewer pipes, please don’t flush the following items down the toilet:

  • Facial tissues
  • Paper towels
  • Disinfectant wipes
  • Baby wipes
  • Towelettes

Wipes and towelettes should be disposed of safely in the garbage, not recycling, and facial tissues and paper towel can be placed in the green bin. Any wipe that states it is “flushable” is not, and may cause a sewer backup.
