Public Announcement



This message is for all GLSSWD customers.

Wet wipes, baby wipes, facial wipes, all types of what can be referred to as sanitary wipes are not allowed to be disposed of in the GLSSWD sewer system, even though the packaging may say they are flushable. Sanitary wipes do not break down in water as regular toilet paper products do. Disposal of sanitary wipes in any type of sewer system can cause pumping systems to plug and fail. They also can contribute to sewer line blockage problems. All sanitary wipes should be considered a solid waste material and disposed of as regular household garbage.
