To Flush or Not to Flush?
Throughout the last decade there has been a call to spread the word on ‘unflushables’ and what can and cannot be flushed down our toilets and sinks. This call has gained a great deal of awareness in more recent years due to news headlines highlighting the issue and the results shocking the public. Unflushable items can cause devastating damage to our sewers, environment and wildlife. According to Water UK (2019), there are approximately 300,000 sewer blockages annually, costing water companies £100 million every year to clear them.
