Disposal Of Wet Wipes And Other Materials

EDM number 898 in 2014-15, proposed by Joan Ruddock on 19/03/2015.
Categorised under the topic of Waste management.

That this House is appalled to learn that the number of wet wipes found as part of the Marine Conservation Society's Beach Clean increased by 50 per cent in a year; understands that wet wipes do not break down like toilet tissue due to their tougher, sometimes plastic, fibres; further understands that water companies estimate that about 70 per cent of blockages are avoidable if wipes and other materials are disposed of properly; supports the 3p's campaign of nothing but pee, poo or paper; and calls on the Government to do more to promote the campaign and encourage manufacturers to raise awareness of correct disposal methods.

This motion has been signed by a total of 37 MPs.
