CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — Corpus Christi's Litter Critter program resumes this Saturday.

“I am proud to reintroduce Litter Critter city-wide for the residents of Corpus Christi," said Mayor Paulette Guajardo. "This is my promise to you in action! Keeping Corpus Christi beautiful is my priority.”

Residents will be able to drop items off at the locations. Only brush and bulky items will be excepted. No tires, appliances, or household hazardous waste is allowed.

The first of a series of locations for the event will be Packery Channel Boat Ramp Parking Lot on Padre Island.

The event starts at 9 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m..
