SANTA CLAUS’ WASTEWATER LIST: NAUGHTY AND NICE

At this time of year as we celebrate with family and friends the holiday season we need to remember our friends in the sewer systems and wastewater treatment facilities.

As we sleep at night and throughout the day’s activities our sewers are flowing to a wastewater treatment facility near you.

We celebrate the holidays and really never think about our morning shower or a flush of the toilet. Washing dishes is a routine of placing them in a dishwasher or hand washing in a sink of soapy water.

Pull the plug, flush the toilet and wow it disappears!

What if it did not disappear, “OH my goodness”?

Here are 10 items on the naughty list from the wastewater collection and treatment facilities perspective.

  1. Wipes…all kinds of wipes!
  2. Fats, Oils and Grease (FOG)
  3. condoms
  4. feminine hygiene products
  5. cotton swabs
  6. dental floss
  7. hair
  8. medicines
  9. kitty litter
  10. food waste

Here are 3 items on the nice list for wastewater collection and treatment facilities.

  1. Poop
  2. Pee
  3. Toilet Paper

If we put “Waste in the right place” and all realize “Toilets are not garbage cans” we will be able to give the greatest gift of all to the wastewater treatment facilities during the holiday season.

A plug free sewer system and lower treatment costs to all!!
