The story paints a pretty horrific picture, telling of a sewage treatment worker who used a rake to clear a bunch wipes -- still intact -- stuck to gears, and walls, and rails at a facility.
To combat the caca chaos, the City Council has introduced legislation that would prohibit some wet wipe products from being advertised as flushable (not an outright ban on the wipes), and the city's environmental officials are planning to launch an awareness campaign compelling New Yorkers to toss their beloved butt wipes in the trash, the Times reported. Or you could just throw them out the window and onto the street, right? Just kidding. Please don't do that.
