Recycling center to open in Crofton

Anne Arundel County will open a new recycling center in Crofton later this month to meet the growing demand from that community.

The drop-off center will open Saturday and be located in the front parking lot of Crofton Elementary School in the 1400 block of Duke of Kent St., near Town Hall.

"We felt there were a lot of people in the community who wanted to recycle but didn't have a place to do it," said Jody Vollmar, spokeswoman for the Department of Utilities.

A drop-off center is to help residents, such as those in Crofton, who are not included in the county's curbside recycling program.

The county will collect recyclable materials from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. the fourth Saturday of each month.

Acceptable materials include all food and beverage glass jars and bottles, newspaper and corrugated cardboard, plastic soda bottles, milk and water jugs, laundry detergent bottles and all metal beverage and food cans.

Unacceptable materials include window glass, dishes, light bulbs, caps and bottle tops, newspaper inserts, magazines, phone books, cereal boxes, milk cartons, margarine tubs, yogurt cups, foam containers, aerosol cans and aluminum foil.

For more information, call Ms. Vollmar at 222-7586.
