The Dirty Dozen


The “Dirty Dozen” is a list that we at UKDN Waterflow have put together to assist you and your business as well as your home with maintaining a happy and healthy drainage system. To help, we have created a downloadable poster which you can print and hang up to help spread awareness.

The “Dirty Dozen” are:

  1. Food waste
  2. Fat, oil and grease
  3. Plastic bags
  4. Nappies
  5. Sanitary towels including tampons, applicators and wrappers
  6. Cotton buds
  7. Condoms
  8. Bandages and plasters
  9. Baby wipes
  10. Medicines, needles and syringes*
  11. Cleaning wipes
  12. Razor blades
*These should be taken to your local pharmacy or heath authority for safe disposal
