'Don't Clog Your Pipes, Shut The Lid On Wipes'

City of Jacksonville campaigns to keep toilets clean of wet wipes.
JACKSONVILLE, AR -- The city of Jacksonville put up a billboard as a reminder of what people shouldn't flush down toilets.

The sign -- at the Redmond road exit -- reads "Don't clog your pipes, shut the lid on wipes."

Wet wipes, even the ones that say "flushable" on the container, can create massive clogs and burn up the city's pumps.

Instead, you're asked to throw the wipes in the trash.
