A message From Public Works
Please do not flush non-toilet paper products down your toilet.
Due to the coronavirus concerns, there has been a shortage of toilet paper on store shelves. This may cause people to look for alternative products such as paper towels, facial tissues, baby wipes, flushable wipes, and other similar items. These products do not break down like toilet paper and can cause sanitary sewer backups, which in turn can cause additional public health concerns.
DO NOT FLUSH
• Paper towels
• Kleenex and other tissues
• Wet wipes/baby wipes (even those labeled as “flushable”)
• Feminine hygiene products
Properly addressing this issue requires everyone to be extra mindful, especially in the days and weeks ahead, but also beyond the containment of COVID-19.
A Message from Republic Services
Due to concerns with COVID-19 and other viruses, Republic Services will no longer be able to pick up items outside of containers. Individuals who need to put out any extras should contact Republic at 320-252-9608 to get an extra container.
