"Flushable" Wipes Cause Damage to Sewer Systems

Products labeled as "flushable" cleansing cloths or wet wipes have been reported to clog toilets and sewer systems throughout the United States and abroad, leading to costly repairs for both homeowners and municipalities.

Please help keep the West Dundee sewer system in good working order. Please do not flush anything other than human waste and toilet tissue.

Additional information can be found at www.forthepeople.com, and a short video illustrating the difference between toilet tissue and wet wipes in terms of breakdown can be viewed at www.consumerreports.org.
