A Reminder to Residents - What Not to Flush Posted: March 9, 2010

Putting the wrong things down the drain can damage the sewer system, cause sewer backups in your home, and sewer releases to the environment. All White City residents should be responsible for what they flush or pour down drains.

Basically, the only thing you should ever flush down a toilet is human waste (urine and feces) and toilet paper. Here is a list of some of things to keep out of the toilet: 

  • disposable diapers 
  • tampons
  • cotton balls and swabs
  • mini or maxi pads
  • unused medications
  • condoms
  • cleaning wipes of any kind
  • facial tissue
  • bandages and bandage wrappings
Thank you for your cooperation.
