PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

CITY OF RUSSELLVILLE, KY

03/18/2020

FROM: PUBLIC WORKS DIRECTOR CITY OF RUSSELLVILLE

 

With the increased use of personal care wipes + disinfecting wipes + cleaning products during this time, we'd like to remind you to PLEASE throw all these items in a trash can, and not down your toilet. Unfortunately, ALL types of wipes can cause major problems for our wastewater system, even if the package says they are flushable.

When wipes are flushed their fibers do not break down like toilet paper does. In our wastewater system these wipes clump together and can cause blockages in our collection system. We would like to remind you do not dispose of these items in your toilet.

 WE THANK YOU AND WE APPRECIATE YOUR HELP.

 

RESPECTFULLY,

CITY OF RUSSELLVILLE
