County residents can drop off old cleaners, pesticides, batteries and other hazardous household wastes tomorrow at the Glen Burnie Convenience Center.

The recycling division of the Anne Arundel County Department of Public Works will accept waste from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the center in the 100 block of Dover Road, near the Glen Burnie Mall.

The program is open to all residents; participants must show driver's licenses as proof of residency.

Public works employees will accept unwanted or unusable household products containing hazardous chemicals, such as oil-based paints, stains, solvents, pesticides, cleaners, pool chemicals and fluorescent light fixtures. Residents are asked to keep their unwanted products in their original containers.

Items that will not be accepted include latex paint, medical waste, smoke alarms, propane and compressed-gas tanks, and commercial or farm waste. Latex paint, which is not toxic, can be recycled at the Glen Burnie and Sudley convenience centers and the Millersville Landfill every Saturday.

A hazardous-waste drop-off also is planned for Sept. 28 at the Western District Roads yard in the 1400 block of Ducken St. in Odenton. Another is planned for Nov. 2 at the Heritage Office Complex in the 2600 block of Riva Road in Annapolis.
