What you should NOT put into the drains or down the loo

 

Fat poured down drains causes fatbergs, solid blockages in the sewers.

Many other things are put down the drains which shouldn’t be and again cause blockages with potential sewer overflow. Such things include wet wipes, tampons, nappies, tights and cotton buds  – none of these should be flushed down the loo, they should go into a bathroom bin.

There’s a pdf leaflet with more detail (but alternate pages are upside down as it’s designed to be printed into a foldable leaflet).
