TAXPAYER'S DOLLARS DOWN THE DRAIN
West Mayfield residents are now enduring the inconvenient cost of infrastructure repairs due to clogged and broken sewer pipes. Repairs to the pipes must be made as quickly as possible to protect the health and safety of the community and to keep the waste water infrastructure in working order.
WE ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM – NO FLUSHABLE BABY WIPES
Residents are reminded to help keep our sewer system in top working condition and to protect the quality of our waste water, which eventually ends up in our rivers and drinking water supply.
Remember the 3 Ps: Poop – Pee – Toilette Paper
Only human waste and toilette paper should be flushed down toilettes.
Nothing else should be flushed down drains even if labeled “flushable,” “safe for toilets,” or “biodegradable.”
Do not use the toilette as a trash can. Do not flush:
Cotton balls and cotton swabs
Dental floss and dental picks
Menstrual products such as pads or tampons
Paper towels and tissues
Wipes and cleaning cloths
Household cleaning chemicals
Household hazardous wastes (paint, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers)
Do not pour fats, oils, or grease down the drains.
