No wipes in the pipes please
Personal hygiene wipes are growing in popularity and benefit people by helping them to stay clean and keep surfaces sanitary, however, they should never be flushed. The photo shown is from the Portland Water District.
That little wipe can cause a lot of damage
Never flush used personal hygiene items
Wipes are wonderful when used and discarded properly. The same goes for all used personal hygiene items; from wipes to feminine hygiene and even incontinence items. These products make our lives easier, more sanitary, a little healthier and perhaps a little more dignified. They are clean, discreet and sanitary. They fit easily with our busy lives and are great for use at home or on the go. But it is important that we all understand that we should never flush these items. They belong in the trash. They cause plumbing clogs, flooding, damage to pumps and even wreak havoc at your local waste water treatment facility.

Do not flush anything but toilet paper
These items may seem flushable but they are not
Items such as tampons, pads, wipes, guards, panty liners, condoms, cotton swabs, cotton pads, makeup wipes, sanitary wipes, baby wipes etc. may seem small and as if they are no problem for your toilet but you are forgetting about what comes after that. These items "may" make it down your toilet, if you are lucky, but they still have a long way to go through plumbing, pipes, pumps, septic system and municipal waste water treatment plant. These items can get hung up anywhere along the way until the next item comes by and then the opening gets smaller and smaller reducing the capacity for waste water to move along. Sometimes this can cause a really disgusting backup. Trust me, no one wants this especially once the plumber pulls out the items that caused it and it comes back to you. Backup flooding causes a lot of damage to drywall, flooring, furniture and then you have to pay the plumber to unclog it or repair pumps and plumbing. Use S.A.C. disposal bags for discreet, sanitary disposal.
Would you discard used toilet paper in the trash? Why?? Well the answer is because its embarrassing, looks and smells bad. And you know you can not flush it because the damage you cause from flushing it will also be embarrassing and expensive. Do you want to be the cause of that flood or backup? Golden Group International, Ltd. has addressed this issue by creating S.A.C. disposal bags. They come in a variety of sizes depending on what you need to discard. S.A.C. SB8836 for example is great for wipes, pad and tampons, DB8010 is better for larger items like adult disposable briefs.
