Wipeout; New Yorkers not yet heard of Isle of Wipes solution

So I’m finally reading this morning’s paper tonight and I see that New York is being menaced by not-so-disposable wipes.
Their people are Flushing (pun intended) but they’ve missed my Bad Housekeeping tip. Pump it out NY.
Are their pollies as bad as ours or will they populate their Isle of Wipes with something else?

The wipes box says flush. New York’s sewer system says don’t.
