Even if a product is labeled “flushable,” it should not be flushed unless it is toilet paper. Here’s a list of a few other items that should always be disposed of in a trash receptacle:
- Diapers (including cloth, cotton, disposable or plastic)
- Flushable, disposable, cleaning or baby wipes
- Paper towels, cloth towels or any type of rag
- Feminine hygiene products
- Facial tissues
The public is highly encouraged to avoid visiting the City Hall and the Water Utility/Public Works Municipal Building until further notice. Please call or email at this time. The City of West Bend is taking these precautions to protect the health and safety of the public and our staff. The City will continue to follow recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Wisconsin Health Services Department. Residents will be notified of any changes to these temporary restrictions.
