Keeping Our Sewer System in Working Order

It has come to our attention that items are being flushed down the toilet or poured down a drain and causing damage to the Village sewer system.

The only items that are to be flushed down the toilet are body waste and toilet paper. We have compiled a list of some of the items not to flush even though they may say that they are “flushable”:

Grease, oil and fats
Feminine hygiene products
Prophylactics/Condoms
Flushable Wipes
Kleenex/Facial Tissue
Dental Floss
Paper towels
Cigarette Butts
Medication
Cotton Balls
Band Aids
Disposable Diapers
Kitty Litter
Paint thinner/ Gasoline
Q-Tips

We appreciate your attention to this matter. We will all end up paying higher sewer rates if significant repairs have to be made because of flushed items that cause damage.

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact our office.
