We welcome the release of new international guidelines for what can be flushed down the toilet. We support efforts in Australia to develop an Australian standard for flushable products. You should only flush the three P’s: pee, poo & paper.
The growth in the number of wipes and related products labeled “flushable” over the past 15 years has been a multi-million dollar headache for water utilities around the globe.
The Water Services Association of Australia continues to contribute to efforts to solve this problem both globally and at home.
The IWSFG specification is supported by water utilities in Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Spain, and the United States of America.
