This program is for Anne Arundel County residents only delivering household hazardous waste. Waste from businesses is not permitted. Residents are encouraged to first use up chemicals, pesticides and other
household products entirely for their intended use.  If a product cannot be used in full, then the County*s program is the next best alternative.  Products containing toxic chemicals include: oven cleaners, wood preservatives, pesticides, flammable liquids, oil-based paint, fluorescent light fixtures, gasoline, mercury thermometers and disinfectants.
