Your toilet is not a trash can.

Sewer main overflows pose a serious threat to San Francisco Bay. Clogged plumbing in a home can cause problems that are difficult and expensive to clean up.

You can help prevent sewer backups both in the street and in your home by not flushing anything other than toilet paper and human waste. Do not flush items labeled “flushable wipes” as they do not break down in water and will cause sewer backups.
