Free Water Smart Funnel
Pick up a free Water Smart Funnel to help you drain cooking fats, oils and grease into a container, not the drain, at these locations…
F.O.G.’s are building up in our pipes and are clogging up Grand Prairie’s sanitary sewer system. It’s not that hazy mist that complicates your sight while driving, but fats, oils and grease that clog up your kitchen sinks, creating chunky F.O.G. monsters.
F.O.G. build-up costs you and the city money. To help avoid these issues, the Public Works Department will be giving away free funnels starting Friday, November 9, to make pouring used grease into non-leaking containers easier. Save the containers in your fridge and sign up for the next Household Hazardous Waste collection day (next collection dates are Saturday, Dec. 1 and Saturday, Jan. 5) to properly dispose of the gunky grease.
Free funnels can be picked up at the following locations (while supplies last):
- City Hall Main Lobby, 317 College St.
- The Epic, 2975 Esplanade (beginning Nov. 17)
- Grand Prairie Development Center, 206 W. Church St.
- Main Library, 901 Conover Dr.
- Shotwell Rec. Center, 2750 Graham St.
- Lake Parks Operations, 5610 Lake Ridge Pkwy.
Don’t forget to view the Don’t Clog the Main webpage on how to properly dispose of your F.O.G.'s.
