What can and cannot be thrown into the toilet? This is the subject of an environmental awareness campaign that the City of Orihuela has set up together with the water company Hidraqua. The campaign, which is entitled “Correct use of the toilet” aims to raise awareness about the importance of what we can put down the toilet and the significance that these discharges have.
For 10 days a traveling exhibition, consisting of two environmental experts, will visit different schools in Orihuela, the districts and Orihuela Costa, to raise awareness among children and youths about the correct use of the toilet and the necessity of avoiding the discharge of wipes, tampons, nappies, oil, etc.
The exhibitors will be housed in a tent which will display information panels and samples of the items that are collected in the sewers from the discharges of home toilets,.
The Councillor for Infrastructure, Juan Ignacio López-Bas said “the purpose of this campaign is so that schoolchildren know first-hand, of the problems and the contamination generated by such waste when improperly thrown into the toilet “.
