GLENDALE -- Burbank residents can dispose of paint, pesticides and

other household hazardous waste today at the Glendale Public Works Yard.

If hazardous materials such as paint, turpentine, acid or lye-based

cleaners, car batteries, motor oil and pesticides are tossed in the trash

or poured down a sink, they can enter the water and pose a health danger.

In addition to today's event, the Burbank Recycle Center accepts oil,


oil filters and antifreeze. Car batteries are usually accepted by the

stores that sell them.

Recycled items can be brought to Glendale Public Works Yard, 800 Air

Way in Glendale from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. today. The Burbank Recycle Center

can be reached at 238-3900.
