Did you know that nothing but human waste and toilet paper should be flushed down the toilet in Inverness County?

Flushing non-flushable or non-biodegradable items has costly consequences. Items such as wipes (even those labeled as flushable) and tampons cause problems when flushed into the sewer system.

These items don't break down like toilet paper. They create blockages which can lead to sewer backups. This causes damage to the system and requires costly repairs.

Blockages in the sewer system can cause wastewater infrastructure to malfunction.

When the sewer system is compromised, untreated sewage can overflow into streets and waterways creating hazardous conditions for residents and wildlife.

Removing blockages caused by non-flushable items requires extra labour and resources. More frequent maintenance and repair efforts diverts funds that could be used for other, much-needed community improvements. Higher operational costs also lead to higher utility rates that residents have to pay.

Whether you are a resident or a visitor to Inverness County, please flush responsibly!

Thanks
