Are there other items that I shouldn't flush?

Baby wipes that don’t biodegrade quickly enough cause problems in pumps and solids grinders at the wastewater treatment plant. The toilet is not a trash can, don’t flush: 

  • paper towels, 
  • diapers, 
  • woven baby wipes, 
  • feminine hygiene products, 
  • hair, 
  • kitty litter, 
  • cotton balls and swabs.
