Don’t flush wipes or other Unflushables

Metro Vancouver’s Unflushables campaign is back to remind residents to flush only pee, poo and toilet paper. Flushing anything else can contribute to sewer clogs and overflows.

Now in its fourth year, the campaign targets seven items that cause the most problems for our wastewater system: wipes, paper towel, tampons and applicators, condoms, floss, hair and medications. Medications can be returned to a pharmacy; all other items should be put in the garbage.

The campaign will run from March to June, launching early to respond to the current increased use of wipes during the COVID-19 pandemic. Campaign messaging will be seen on YouTube and social media, Google search, online articles and television. Remember, even if they say they’re flushable, wipes go in the garbage.
