Don’t use the toilet as a trash can!
Your toilet is not a trash can. And if you use it as one, please reconsider!
The sanitary sewer system is responsible for carrying wastewater away from your home and into wastewater treatment facilities where it is cleaned before returning to local waterways. But this system was only designed to transport toilet paper, water and human waste. When you use it as a trash can, the trash clogs the lines and pumps of the sanitary sewer system. Clogs lead to system breakdowns and sewage overflows. These sewage overflows require expensive repairs and hurt our local economy and waterways.
