How can I stop sewer flooding?
You can help to stop our sewers from blocking and flooding by following our guide below:
- Only flush the 3 P’s pee, paper and poo
- Bag and bin baby wipes, cotton buds, sanitary products, nappies and similar materials
- Do not pour grease or cooking fat down the sink – the fat solidifies so dispose in a waste bin
- Don’t push kitchen food waste down the sink
- Medical items like needles and syringes should be placed in special sharps bins
- Keep unwanted oil in a metal can and recycle for safe disposal
