What Can I Flush Down the Toilet?
Short answer: if it didn’t come out of your body and it isn’t toilet paper, then it does not belong in the toilet! Just because an item can physically be flushed, does not mean that it should. "Flushable" wipes, for example, do not break down in the sewer system and actually clog and break pipes, pumps, and lift stations, costing ratepayers like yourself major cash for sewer line repairs.
