Avoid plugging drains with flushable wipes

The Facilities Office requests that sanitary wipes, even when termed flushable, NOT be flushed down toilets. Wipes, flushable or otherwise, should be disposed of in the trash.

There have now been several recent instances of campus bathroom drains being plugged by flushable wipe masses in the pipes. The cost of remedying the situation has been hundreds of dollars in one case, and several thousand in another.

They might flush, but they don’t clear the piping! Please contact Jim Van Dokkumburg, Executive Director of Facilities, with any questions at jvandokk@grcc.edu. Thank you for your understanding.
