Flushing plastic or cardboard products can clog the sewer system and your own bathroom facilities. It also increases maintenance costs at the WRRC which is reflected in the sewer use fees residents pay.
Do not flush unused medications down the toilet. You can safely dispose of medications in the garbage, or take medications to an approved prescription drug take-back site or event. Unused medication is accepted 24 hours/7 days a week at the Dubuque Law Enforcement Center. A drop off container is located in the lobby at 770 Iowa Street.
