A ‘Yucky and Gross’ Post
Michael McKaskle, President of the Redway Community Services District, warns that flushable baby wipes aren’t flushable.
In an interview with KMUD’s Izzy Vanderheiden, he tells community members, “I just wanted let people know that we’ve been having a lot of trouble with “flushable” baby wipes or personal wipes ending up in the system. And they really aren’t flushable. And they’ve clogged our system several times over the last couple years–including one mammoth clog where our staff had to take out seven 6 gallon buckets full of soiled baby wipes having clogged the system. And that’s really yucky and gross…
McKaskle warns, “Just because it says, ‘Flushable’ doesn’t mean it is flushable. So in Redway and probably everywhere else in our area…, don’t flush anything besides human waste and toilet paper.
