Sanitary Wipe Notice

Posted on March 16, 2020 by Joni Heinz

With the Coronavirus at the forefront of our world right now, and the use of hand sanitation wipes and latex or surgical gloves on the rise to ward off the virus, the City of Neenah Public Works Department would like to inform you about the damage wipes and latex or surgical gloves can cause to the sanitary sewer system.   These types of products along with other similar products are not meant to be flushed into the sewer system.  These items cause major problems by clogging the pumps in our lift stations and clogging sewer mains.   These clogs can damage pumps, cost time and money for maintenance crews to repair, and lead to sewage back up in basements.

Please dispose of these items in the trash and refrain from flushing any of these items down the toilet.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us at (920)886-6240.  Thank you for your cooperation.
