Forever Yogurt celebrates five years of serving frozen treats in Homewood

The Flossmoor Public Works Department is asking residents to stop putting flushable wet wipes in their toilets. The department has also advised against flushing baby wipes, paper towels and disinfectant wipes, encouraging residents to only flush human waste and toilet paper.  

Some municipalities have reported an increase in clogged sewer pipes since the COVID-19 outbreak, citing these wipes as a part of the problem.

Cleaning wipes should not be flushed down toilets, according to Flossmoor officials, because they can clog sanitary sewage systems. (Eric Crump/H-F Chronicle)
