clog pipesThe City of Owen Sound is reminding residents that wipes clog pipes. To avoid sewer backups in your home and municipal sewer pipes and pumps, please dispose of the following items in the trash, not the toilet:

Disinfecting wipes;
Baby wipes;
Paper towels; and
Facial tissues.
Any wipe that claims to be “flushable” is not, and needs to be disposed of in the garbage.

Staff having to continually clean these wipes from pumps, manholes, and sewer mains will cost the City approximately $30,000 to $60,000 in 2021 if this practice does not stop. Please do your part by placing materials in the garbage.
