Attention all Worthing Residents-Don't be fooled. Flushable items are not flushable:
Please remember, your toilet is not a trash can.

With the limited availability of toilet tissue, we understandthat citizens may have to turn to alternative types of wipes. The citylift stations are being negatively impacted by these alternatives being flusheddown the toilet.

Please do NOT flush wipes of ANY kind down thetoilet. The only flushable item is toilet paper. Please dispose ofwipes, paper towels, tissues, napkins and the like in the trash.

Many products these days are marketed as flushable.From disposable toilet bowl cleaners to wipes that clean your ?bum?. TheCity of Aberdeen Public Works Department and Water Reclamation Facility(Wastewater Treatment Plant) want you to know that these items can?t beflushed. Some of these items claim they dissolve enough to make it downyour toilet but, they re-form once they enter the sewer and can cause sewerback up and damage pumping equipment.
