Do not throw Christmas waste in drains and gullies - NWC
The National Water Commission (NWC) is urging the public to avoid disposing of their Christmas waste in drains and gullies.
The NWC says the debris may cause blockages.
It says the overflow of raw sewage seen from time to time in communities is due to blocked drains.
The NWS says during a typical operation to clear blockages, the work crew will often detect several objects that do not belong in the central sewerage system such as household garbage, kitchen utensils, fats, oils and greases.
