More About Don't Flush!

Some information from the City of Cumberland, but certainly to be considered by all.

Wipes Clog Pipes!

With the increased use in disinfectant products, wipes and paper towels, the City of Cumberland Utilities Division would like to inform the community to NOT flush disinfectant wipes or wipes of any kind down the toilet.

Items, including wipes labeled by manufactures as “flushable” should never be flushed down the toilet. They do no break up in the sanitary system like toilet paper and can cause sewer back-ups in homes, apartments, and businesses, as well as in the sewer system. These back-ups can require costly plumbing repairs and create an environmental hazard.

The following items are considered trash and should be placed in the trash can (do not flush):

Wipes (baby, disinfecting, personal, etc)
Personal hygiene products
Paper towels and other disposable cleaning clothes
Facial tissue, Q-tips, Dental floss, etc…

Please only flush toilet paper. Toilet paper is made to break apart after it is flushed.
