Zionsville Wastewater Department has a message for residents: please stop flushing wipes down the toilet. With an increase in use of disinfectant wipes, the Zionsville Wastewater Department is more concerned about backups and overflows.
Even if the container says the wipes are flushable, they are not. Items that are NOT flushable include: cleaning wipes of any kind, baby wipes, paper towels, facial tissue, fibrous towels and medical waste including needles, colostomy bags and catheters. Putting these items in the toilet could cause blockages and damage the sewer system.
