Tissues Should Not Be Discarded in Toilets

Kleenex tissue should not be flushed. This type of paper is designed to stay together when wet, and absorb moisture, so it often takes too long to break down in the sewer system and can cause sewage blockages. It appears that tissues are infinitely stronger than toilet paper, and take forever to break down. To prevent clogging pipes, tissues should be discarded in a trash can only.

How Can I Properly Dispose of Latex Paint?

Latex paint is not hazardous and can be thrown away once it is dry.  Garbage collectors cannot pick up liquids so remove the lid and let the paint dry.  To speed up this process, add kitty litter or paint hardener.   Once the paint is dry, set it out with your regular trash.
