Baby please don't throw...

I spotted this funny sign a few days a go in the toilet of a restaurant here.
Well, we wouldn't throw anything at the bathroom anyway, would we ? 
You often see similar signs in toilets here on La Gomera albeit mostly written in better English. So what do they want to tell us ?
The sewerage system in most places here on La Gomera (and generally in the Canary Islands) can't cope with paper and sanitary items and if these are thrown into the toilet bowl it can easily lead to blockages. The general rule is: If you can spot a bucket or other container beside or near the toilet bowl, then you should use that for the disposal of toilet paper, etc. , but don't just throw it AT it, throw it IN please.
