Keep Our Sewer System Safe
The toilet paper shortage is forcing some people to use flushable wipes. Despite being labeled as “flushable,” these types of products wreak havoc on wastewater systems. Help keep Henrico’s sewer system running by following the “3Ps” – only flush pee, poo and toilet paper.
