Sure. There is an all-purpose ABS/PVC solvent cement available at most home improvement stores. Look in the plumbing/irrigation section.

It's called a transition cement, because it's used in the transition between ABS and PVC pipe (which is common). It works because there are several chemicals common to both types of plastics that act as solvents.
