In the midst of COVID-19, people are running out of toilet paper and resorting to other alternatives that could hurt the sewer system. Pima County Wastewater officials say they are starting to see items that can clog pipes and the community's sewer system.
Items that are labeled flushable or disposable can even cause a problem. Flushing items other than toilet paper could cost homeowners a hefty plumbing bill or even damage water pumps that will end up costing taxpayers to have them repaired. Only flush toilet paper down the toilet. Throw all other items in the trash.
