Pre-moistened towelettes called "wet wipes" are becoming an increasing trend in our bathroom culture. Due to the convenience and comfort they offer, more people are opting to buy these wet wipes instead of traditional toilet paper. The fact that many of these wipes are being marketed as flushable, keeps them competitive with their paper rival as users are not forced to find some alternative means of disposing of them.
Unlike toilet paper, which normally dissolves in no longer than 24 hours, wet wipes may dissolve for weeks or months causing clogs that will have to be fixed by a professional plumbing service. Furthermore, if you have tree roots that are spidering into your sewage pipes, then these "flushable" wipes, these wet wipes could get caught on the roots that are making their way through your piping causing blockages.
And the problem doesn't stop there. If the wet wipes make it past your sewage plumbing, it may still cause problems through the Township's main sewer lines and also at it's sewage treatment plant. The Township's sewage treatment plant has been experiencing clogs and other problems associated with wet wipes for years. The plant struggles with aging infrastructure for years and the problem with "ragging" - when baby wipes, dental floss, paper towels, facial tissue, and other items not designed for flushing entangle sewer pumps.

Many years ago Pittsburgh was known around the world as the "Smoky City" due to the extensive emissions from our mills and factories. The pollution was so bad that on some days you couldn't see from one end of the street to another. But, right after Word War II, the City of Pittsburgh and Allegheny County passed a number of ordinances to control air pollution, including restrictions on outdoor burning.
At one time open fires in Allegheny County were virtually abolished, but over the years there have been exceptions made to those restrictions at the county and municipal levels.
Unfortunately, there is a great deal of confusion about what is allowed and not allowed when it comes to outdoor fires. To clarify the matter, Township Council has drafted a new ordinance (Number 681) regarding restrictions and regulations on open burning. Visit our open fires / burning webpage for details.
