How to dispose of cleaning wipes

Put all cleaning wipes and disinfectant wipes into your black cart as garbage. This includes wipes labelled as compostable, biodegradable or flushable.

Why can't wipes be composted or flushed down the toilet?

  • Never flush personal hygiene items down the toilet, sink or drain as they can be harmful to the environment and may cause damage to the pipes in your home.
  • Many wipes contain cleaning and other chemicals that do not belong in the green cart.
  • Wipes may also be made of a mix of organic and synthetic fibres, plastic or manufactured products that will not breakdown during the composting process.

To ensure we're creating the highest quality compost possible, leave all types of wipes out of your green cart.
