Most of us know there’s only three things that should be sent down the toilet – Pee, Poo and Paper but it seems some are still missing the message with wet wipes continuing to cause blockages in Canberra’s wastewater system.

To help drive home the message about the ‘three P’s’, Icon Water last year launched its ‘Free the Poo’ campaign – encouraging Canberran to bin their wet wipes.

Now, it’s turning the campaign up a notch by launching it’s very own ‘Free the Poo’ game.

The game lets you play as a poo who’s mission it is to bust out the wet wipes in Canberra’s sweage system and help unclocg the city’s wastewater pipes.

Watch the game in action:

Icon Water General Manager, Davina McCormick said it’s hoped the game will help increase players understanding of Canberra’s wastewater network and the impacts of flushing wet wipes and other unsuitable products down the toilet, drains or sinks.


“Sewer blockages are a significant issue costing money and time to fix, so we are looking to the Canberra community through this quirky and interactive campaign to help us protect our sewerage network from things that shouldn’t be there.”

“We want them to care about what happens underground and only flush the 3Ps (pee, poo and toilet paper).”

‘Free the Poo’ is available online now and via the Apple and Google Play app stores.
