Don’t Flush Trouble!
USE THE TRASH CAN, NOT THE TOILET!
Important Message from New Castle Wastewater Treatment Plant and Collection System.
The label might say “flushable,” but trash, grease and other products are clogging our sewer lines, damaging pumps, and other equipment.
Not only are these problems expensive for the City to repair, they can also cause raw sewage overflows into homes, businesses and local waterways. So, think trash, not toilet!
