The SacTown Unflushables

The SacTown Unflushables


SacSewer has put out an APB on the SacTown Unflushables, most wanted for taking over your drains, clogging pipes, and causing sewage overflows in the Sacramento region!  

We need your help to prevent sewage blockages and overflows by putting these offenders in the trash where they belong. 

When improperly flushed down the toilet, items like disposable disinfectant wipes, baby wipes, so-called “flushable” wipes, floss, and masks wreak havoc on sewer pipes and equipment. Paper products other than toilet paper (e.g., paper towels) also do not break down once in the sewer system. No matter what the label says, DO NOT flush them, trash them instead.

Capture these crooks and stop the clog!


This dirty rebel comes in all forms. Items like disinfectant wipes, baby wipes, and even “flushable” wipes cause serious problems for the sewer system. These items do not break down once they’re flushed, so remember to trash the wipe, not the pipe.

Last seen sneaking through the sewer system, this masker of disguise interacts with the Clog Squad and invasive roots in the sewer, which bind together, causing blockages and creating the potential for overflows. If you come in contact with this sneaky sewage stopper, put this menace in the trash! 

This small but mighty menace was spotted causing a snarled mess in your bathroom pipes. Dental floss is made of material that is not biodegradable and will not break down. To avoid larger blockages and overflows, put this culprit in the trash, not the toilet.

Have you spotted the SacTown Clog Squad?
