How Do I Recycle or Dispose of ...? Wipes
  No matter what they are called, wet wipes, baby wipes, or moist towelettes, are bad for the sewer system. These bad boys clog pipes and pumps, and are generally loathed by our sewer maintenance men and women because of the problems that they cause. It just goes to show you that even though something may be “flushable,” you shouldn’t do it.

What can I do?
• Always dispose of wipes in the trash. NOT the toilet.
