While it’s great that people seem to be following the Centers for Disease Control recommendations to clean up with disinfecting wipes to reduce the spread of the novel coronavirus COVID-19, flushing the wipes away can create problems for our pipes.

Verona officials posted a reminder to social media on Monday that flushing disposable wipes down toilets can clog sewers and cause backups and overflows at wastewater treatment facilities, all of which would be an additional public health problem. The wipes and paper towels, which are also being used, do not break down like toilet paper, and cab clog systems very quickly. The town is asking residents to stop flushing paper towels and wipes, even those labeled “flushable.” Simply put them in your trash cans and throw them out with the garbage.
