Paving at disposal center limits items to basic household trash, recyclables

April 04, 2001

Disposal services at the county's Glen Burnie Convenience Center will be limited to basic household trash and recyclables - paper, cans, bottles and jars - for the next few weeks. The Department of Public Works is paving roads and driveways through the center on Dover Road.

"Customers may experience delays due to the road work and are advised that only limited service will be available at the ... center during construction," the department said.

"Many items, such as scrap metal, yard and wood waste, appliances and rubble will not be accepted. Residential customers should take these items to the Millersville Convenience Center on Burns Crossing Road in Severn."

When the paving is complete, residential customers will find the Glen Burnie trash and recycling center easier to use, said Molly Cannon, the Bureau of Solid Waste's manager of community services.

"We survey our customers routinely to learn what they like and don't like about our center and the service they receive here," Cannon said.

"What we learned was turned into an action plan to update the site, make it more efficient and, most of all, to make it work better for our customers."

The Millersville Landfill and Resource Recovery Facility and its convenience center are 15 miles from the Glen Burnie Convenience Center and operate daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., except holidays.
