Legislators have been stepping up efforts to address concerns about wipes and similar items being flushed and causing issues with wastewater systems. Industry initiatives have been gaining success by focusing efforts on the 98% of wipes that are NOT marketed as “Flushable Wipes.” There are now four state laws in place requiring “Do Not Flush” labeling for select wipes. Additional bills addressing flushability are pending or imminent in five states and New York City. Federal legislation is also in bloom with targeted and more sweeping bills introduced in both the House and Senate. Join Jennifer Greenamoyer, INDA’s new Director of Government Affairs, for a tour through these legislative initiatives, industry success stories and the greater political environment we are all navigating.
