"Flushables" News Coverage

Missed yesterday’s KCBS coverage about the problems caused by new products such as cleaning wipes that are marketed as flushable? Check out this 1-minute podcast featuring Melody LaBella, who works for Central Contra Costa Sanitary District and serves on CWEA’s Public Education Committee.

Consumer testing – and the clogged machinery at your treatment facility – shows that only toilet paper should be flushed down the drain. Toilets are not trash cans.  CWEA, in collaboration with its Clean Water Summit Partners and WEF, is working to raise awareness about the problems with wet wipes and other non-dispersible products that are being mis-labed as “flushable.”
