How should I dispose of paper towels, flushable wipes, hair, feminine hygiene products and other miscellanous trash?
Never ever flush trash into the sewer system! These materials are likely to cause a sewer backup because the sewer systems are not designed to handle them. Everything besides toilet paper and normal human waste should be disposed of in a trash can!
