Bag It and Bin It

Bag It and Bin It – Don’t Flush It
Bag It and Bin It

A water industry-led campaign Bag It & Bin It aims to educate people about what not to flush.

 Toilets are only designed to take away human waste and toilet paper. Any other personal waste should be disposed of correctly as household waste.

  This protects the environment and the UK’s waterways, avoids harm to marine life and prevents problems in the sewage system, which was not designed with this sort of waste in mind.

Items that shouldn’t be disposed of down the toilet include:

Cotton buds 
Sanitary towels
Baby wipes
Kitchen roll   
Dental floss   
Nappies 
Plasters and bandages 
Razor blades 
Syringes and needles   
Medicines and tablets 

Below is a festive themed reminder of the points made above.

 

Blocks & Nasties

Hydro Cleansing‘s engineers are called out, on a daily basis, to blockages of all shapes and sizes, from pump stations to drainage systems throughout London and the South East.

After flushing you probably don’t give it another thought, heading on your way, but our sewer network is only designed to deal with human waste and toilet paper.

All other items should be binned, including any product that claims to be flushable.

This will help prevent any future problems or blockages you may experience.

Unfortunately these items are found and dealt with on a daily basis:
