Flushable wipes block pipes and waterways | CHOICE
Sydney Water has removed more than 1000 tonnes of wet wipe materials from its wastewater system in the past two years. If laid end-to-end, that's enough wet wipes to reach LA and back again. Wet wipes increase the risk of pipe blockages and overflows to local creeks and rivers. About 75% of all sewer blockages involve wet wipes.
