WHAT NOT TO FLUSH!

Township officials are reminding residents that many materials flushed or poured down a drain can harm the pipes that connected to the sewer system and cause sewer backups in your home and sewer releases to the environment. Basically, the only thing you should ever flush down a toilet is human waste and toilet paper. Keep the following out of the toilet: disposable diapers, tampons and tampon applicators, sanitary napkins, cotton balls and swabs, mini or maxi pads, condoms, cleaning wipes of any kinds, facial tissue, bandages and bandage wrappings, automotive fluids, paint, solvents, sealants and thinners and poisons and hazardous waste. Do not flush medications down the toilet. Take the medications to an approved prescription drug take-back site or event. Never pour grease in your sink drain and try to reduce the use of your garbage disposal. Grease in sewer pipes causes maintenance problems for property owners and the Township.

No Grease Down the Drain!

Grease is a byproduct of cooking. It comes from meat, lard, oil, shortening, butter, margarine, food scraps, baking goods, sauces and dairy products. When grease washes down the sink, it sticks to the insides of the pipes that connect your home or business to the Township’s sewer. It also coats the insides of the Township’s sewer pipes. Eventually, the grease can build up until it completely blocks sewer pipes. That can create difficult and expensive maintenance problems for both the Township and private property owners. Blocked sewer pipes can cause raw sewage to back up into your home or business, or overflow into streets and streams. Garbage disposals don’t keep grease out of sewer pipes. Products that claim to dissolve grease may dislodge a blockage, but will only cause problems farther on down the line when the grease hardens again.
