Don't Flush Wet Wipes!

Communications from Hastings District Council

Excessive flushing of wet wipes caused a blockage at the Clive wastewater plant last night.
Please put your wet wipes in the bin rather than down the toilet. Although many say they are biodegradable, none are suitable to be flushed, and can cause wastewater to get blocked and overflow onto properties and pollute our waterways.
Dealing with blockages during the lockdown also puts our essential workers at risk.

Remember, washing your hands well with soap is still the best way to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Now more than ever it's up to all of us to try not to annoy our neighbours, and to be more tolerant ourselves, so here are some easy ways to do just that.

And if you're wondering what makes a good neighbour and what makes a bad one, check out the 12 most annoying neighbour types. How many have you lived next to?
