Please do not flush anything besides toilet paper! Wipes Clog Pipes!

Denver area residents are reminded to only flush toilet paper

As Denver area communities face a toilet paper shortage caused by the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Bear Creek Water and Sanitation District and the Metro Wastewater Reclamation District (Metro District) reminds local residents to refrain from flushing anything other than toilet paper – including:

  • All types of wipes (even wipes labeled as flushable)

  • Paper towels, napkins, facial tissue, and all other paper products

  • Toilet bowl scrub pads

  •   Please read the message, which is also posted on the Metro District’s website:  Wipes Clog Pipes!
