You talking about the sponge on a HOB overflow? If you are you could try a mesh bag over the hole but the sponge does serve a purpose and keep trash from going down in the fuge.

Like I said you can get those small mesh bags and rubberband it around the drain pipe that`s sticking up.

yeah but I would still have to clean it out if it starts to collect junk around it... Which I have lots of junk around it. So I guess it kind of defeats the purpose of taking the sponge out for the mesh I guess...

At least you could just throw it away and put a new one on. It`s up to you. I always just cleaned the sponge out.
