Fat, Oil, Grease and Grit
Fat, oil, grease and grit (FOGG) don’t belong in your drains. When these items make their way into sewer lines, they clump together and harden to form blockages. These blockages can cause sewage backups that spill out onto the street, and even into homes, schools, and businesses.
Wipes Clog Pipes
The biggest culprit of all: ‘Flushable Wipes’. Although there are many personal wipes that are labeled and marketed as ‘Flushable’, these wipes clog pipes and should never be flushed.
Never flush unused or expired medications down the toilet. Clark County residents can safely and anonymously dispose of any unused or expired prescription or over-the-counter medications at any local Police Department substations.
