Look after your loo

What you put down your toilet can affect your pipes and the Watercare network.

Remember, only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed down the toilet.  Everything else should be put in the bin including:

  • Wipes
  • Sanitary products
  • Dental floss
  • Nappies
  • Cotton buds

DO NOT flush unwanted medication down your loo!

Disposing of medication - It's important that you do not pour your unwanted medication down the toilet.  We don't want it to end up in the wastewater network or the environment.  You can return it to a pharmacy for free, where it will be disposed of properly.  


If you do have a blocked drain, give us a call!
