What can I put in the toilet or drain?
Residents should avoid putting grease or eggshells in their sinks or garbage disposals. Grease is a major cause of sewer stoppages and eggshells do not decompose and can clog pipes and pumps.

The only thing that should be flushed down the toilet is toilet paper. Other items, such as feminine hygiene products, wrappers, baby wipes, and Swiffer pads can cause backups in sewer mains and laterals and damage sewer pumps.
