The do’s and don’ts of flushable wipes

When it goes down, it doesn’t just go away.

Flushable wipes have been raising some trouble across the United States. And it’s no different here.

Director of Utility Operations for the Bismarck Public Works Michelle Klose says this issue has definitely affected North Dakota.

She says companies are marketing these wipes as flushable but they’re not.

“They don’t disintegrate when they’re flushed. So toilet paper is made to actually disintegrate as soon as it’s flushed down the toilet. Flushable wipes actually hold on to each other, they stick together,” said Klose.
