We are fully aware that some customers may turn to other items due to the shortage of toilet paper in surrounding stores. We are asking that you do not flush anything other than toilet paper. The use of paper towels, facial tissues, baby wipes, flushable wipes, and other similar items do not break down like toilet paper and can cause sanitary sewer overflows. That causes additional health issues on top of worries about the COVID-19.
We thank you for the cooperation and if you have any questions please reach out to our office at (217) 477-0800. Visit http://www.dph.illinois.gov/ for the most current updates regarding the COVID-19.
