JACKSON — Just because wet wipes and paper towels say on the label “flushable” doesn’t mean you should.
Jackson Mayor Randy Evans issued a memo to the citizens of Jackson that stated that wipes and paper towels clog pipes and pumps.
“Despite what their labeling may claim, flushable wet wipes and paper towels are causing issues on our sewer systems and wastewater plant equipment,” stated Evans. “Though they may technically go down when you flush, wet wipes and paper towels do no easily breakdown.”
Evans added, “Only toilet paper and what comes from the human body should be flushed down the commode.”
Citizens across Ohio, during the week following the first hand fulls of confirmed cases of COVID-19, started “panic buying” all kinds of items, like toilet paper.
