Watch: A look at the oddities flushed down Whistler toilets

RMOW asks public to be extra careful with flushables as filtration offline
Just a few of the items flushed down Whistler toilets over the years.

Action figures, a plastic toy gun, and a cell phone; golf balls, wiffle balls, and a series of shot glasses; various types of dice, personal identification, and a full bottle of Fireball.

These are just a few of the, ahem, untraditional items flushed down Whistler toilets over the years, according to a video shared by the Resort Municipality of Whistler on its social channels.

"All of these were flushed down Whistler’s toilets at some point. Not pictured (the most common unflushable offenders): condoms, baby wipes, hygiene products, and medications. #adventuresinwastemanagement," the RMOW said.
"From Monday, Sept. 18 to Monday, Oct. 9, the screeners (filtering machines) at the Whistler Wastewater Treatment Plant (that trap all the unflushables) will be offline as they receive some essential upgrades. So, during this time, we ask you to be EXTRA careful not to flush anything you shouldn’t.
"Side note, even if they say they’re flushable, products like wipes belong in the garbage. These products don’t break down quickly enough in the wastewater system (or at all) and can end up clogging our sewers and your pipes."
