Dwayne Pipe transcript

Start of transcript



A Don’t Rush to Flush game show sign flashes across the screen. The camera then pans to the game show host Seymour Clearwater who is standing behind a podium.

Seymour Clearwater:

Don’t Rush to Flush. Welcome back to Don’t Rush to Flush. I’m your host Seymour Clearwater. Now for round number two and a game we call Quick Flush.

Dwayne Pipe, select the items here that are safe to flush down the drain, and hit the flush button before the time runs out.


The camera zooms over to contestant Dwayne Pipe. (People cheering in the background.)

It then shows images of the five options which are cooking oil, water, paint, fuel and pesticide. It also shows an image of a timer counting down to zero. Dwayne’s hand hovers over the options as he tries to select the correct answer. He selects water just before the time runs out. 

Dwayne Pipe:

Um, ahhhhhhhh…...


The camera zooms back to Seymour Clearwater

Seymour Clearwater:

I’m sorry Dwayne, you’re out of time. Actually, water is the only correct answer. As household wastes such as cooking oil and food wastes, fuels, oils and weed killers and chemicals, paints and cleaning products can clog or damage pipes, and even lead to explosions!

Sewage overflows can end up in creeks and other waterways affecting marine life. Instead, small amounts of cooking oil can be sealed and placed in the bin. 

Logan City Council’s Landfill and Transfer Stations offer a disposal service for chemicals, paints and pesticides on selected dates. 
And for those of you playing at home who want to know what can and cannot be flushed through the cities sewerage, head to our website. 

And remember, if it's H2O, it's good to go. If you have to think, don’t flush it down your sink.

Don’t Rush to Flush!


It shows someone washing their hands in the laundry with the water running into an underground pipe. It then shows someone tipping cooking oil down the same sink in the laundry. The oil goes into an underground pipe, builds up and causes an explosion in the pipe. When the pipe bursts, sewage leaks out of the pipe and into a playground. It then runs into a nearby creek and shows fish floating on the top of the water. 

Next, it shows the correct way to dispose of cooking oil which is pouring it into a container and placing it in the bin. 
It pans to a new screen where it shows images of chemicals, paint and fuel with arrows pointing to the an image of Council’s Transfer Station. This is the correct place to dispose of these items.

The Don’t Rush to Flush sign pans across the screen again. It pans back to Seymour Clearwater and the Don’t Rush to Flush sign one last time. 

It finishes with the Logan City Council logo.
