Put rubbish in the bin, not down the drain
What you put down your sink or toilet can affect your pipes and our network.
Remember – only human waste and toilet paper should be flushed down the toilet. Everything else – including things such as wipes, sanitary products, dental floss and nappies, and fat, oil and grease from cooking – should be put in the bin.

Disposing of medication
Please don't pour your unwanted medication down the sink or flush it down the toilet. Please return it to a pharmacy for free, where it will be disposed of properly and will not end up in our wastewater network or the environment. Find out more about disposing of medicines.
If you have a blocked drain or wastewater (sewage) overflow, call us on (09) 442 2222 before you call a plumber. Learn more: There is a blocked drain on my property
