Holiday season is about to begin, and whether someone is cooking or baking, areas where grease is disposed can be a problem.

The Wastewater Division of Corpus Christi held a presentation on how to properly dispose “Fog.”

Fog stands for fats, oils, and grease – and most holiday meals consist of plenty of these ingredients. The Wastewater Division recommends for people to avoid draining “fog” down their sinks, because it can not only be a problem for them, but for the city as well.

When fats, oils, and greases are improperly disposed down sinks, it will also clog sewer lines. To avoid this problem, the city is providing free grease containers and food scrapers to the public.

You can pick them up at 2726 Holly Rd or at City Hall the information center located on 1201 Leopard street,

The grease containers and food scrapers will also be distributed at three different H-E-B locations this Saturday from 10:00am to 1:00pm. The H-E-B locations will be in Flour Bluff on 1145 Waldron Rd, 3033 Port Ave, and H-E-B Plus on 5313 Saratoga Blvd.
