What items are safe to dispose in the toilet?

Sewers are designed to dispose of very specific things; toilet paper and human waste. Refrain from using “flushable” items such as baby wipes or diapers. These items do not break down fast enough and they will clog your toilets and tangle the drains.

Diapers of any kind (cloth, disposable, “flushable”)
Facial tissues
Baby wipes, disinfectant wipes, moist wipes, etc.
Toilet bowl scrub pads
Swiffer sheets
Napkins (paper or cloth), paper towels
Dental floss
Egg shells, nutshells, and coffee grounds
Fats, oils, and greases
Food items containing seeds and peelings
Sanitary napkins, tampons, condoms, or any non-organic material
Vitamins, medicines or other pharmaceuticals
Wash cloths, towels, rags (any cloth item)
Sheet plastic, or plastic of any kind
