With toilet paper and other products in high demand it is important to remember that only the 3P's should be flushed down the toilet - Pee, Poo and toilet Paper!

Practicing good hygiene is extremely important at this time - however, wet wipes, paper towel and tissues can create 'fatbergs' which result in blockages and extra costs for utilities and customers.

Wastewater systems are designed for human waste and toilet paper. Toilet paper breaks down quickly but while wet wipes may clear your toilet bowl, they do not break down quickly enough for our wastewater systems. This can lead to blockages and overflows into homes and creeks.
