In America, some tampons can be put in the toilet now. However if you have a septic tank or live in an apartment complex with many people it's advised not to because it won't break down quick enough and may clog your toilet.

In America, unless there is a sign on the stall stating otherwise, you flush your tampon (obviously not the wrapper or applicator). The only times I have seen it requested to place in the bin is at University and a craft festival that was using septic.

The FML says you're a male. I hope that's a mistake and you're not actually her son telling her where she can and can't put her tampons. Mainly because I feel your mom would have more experience in that department than you.

Like everyone else who's already commented, toilet is normal for me too. I'm in South Africa. Septic tank is when we then have to make a plan. I can understand why she'd think it's safe there too.

It's not fine in the USA. But most people are lazy and the vast majority don't know how their toilet even works. Most people also think that if it flushes down it's safe to go in the toilet. Like "flushable" wipes, so not flushable.

In America they market wipes as "flushable" even though they do not dissolve in water and are known to clog sewer lines. Tampons and wet wipes are not made dissolve when wet. And yuck if they were.
