TOWN OF TRENTON NOTICE
Re: Energy Consumption Status Survey
Did you receive a suspicious text or email regarding energy consumption? (See photo for example).
This is NOT coming from the Town of Trenton. We have also reached out to Nova Scotia Power to confirm that this survey is NOT from them.
This is a scam. Do not complete or submit survey. Please delete it.

Do Not Flush Wipes

Please Do NOT Flush Any Household Wipes
The following notice was in the January 2020 issue of TrentonTalk. In these current times, it is especially important to remind resident's not to flush wipes of any kind including ones that claim to be "flushable" or "biodegradable".
To Flush or Not to Flush:Are Flushable Wipes Really Safe to Flush?
Wet wipes are marketed as “flushable” so there should be no problem with flushing them down the toilet, right? Wrong! Even though these wipes do eventually break down, they take a longer amount of time to do so compared to toilet paper. Since the breakdown of wet wipes aren’t as rapid, clogged pipes and blockages occur more frequently. Wipes can also cause clogged sewers and get tangled in pumps and equipment. Thick toilet paper, paper towels, cotton swabs, dental floss, sanitary pads, and toilet cleaning pads are all commonly flushed items that contribute to clogs and backups. They ALL belong in the regular garbage.
Thank you for your cooperation!
