Ayer

Protect sewage system from clogs

Continue reading below

The Department of Public Works says the town’s sewer system is encountering problems because some residents are using it to dispose of items — such as diapers, cooking oils, grease, syringes, and plastic bags — that its waste-water treatment operation cannot handle. These items may cause major blockages in sewer lines, and damage expensive treatment equipment, according to an announcement posted on the department’s page on the town website, www.ayer.ma.us. For more information, including safe and environmental disposal alternatives, call the department at 978-772-8240.
