Toilet paper in simplified or condominium sewers?

Hello colleagues! Just a simple question, does toilet paper cause any blockage problem in these sewers? is it better to throw it separately in a bin?

Thank you!

Re: Toilet paper in simplified or condominium sewers?

That depends on many factors, but if we are talking about longer transport distances than you probably mean a "solids-free" sewer in which case solids (incl. toilet paper) are intercepted in a sort of septic-tank on the plot.
