DEVENS — The Devens Household Hazardous Waste regional collection center is a success, according to many of its participant towns. It serves Ashby, Ayer, Bolton, Devens, Groton, Harvard, Lancaster, Littleton, Lunenburg, Shirley and Townsend.

It opened in July 2011. According to its website, the HHW allows residents and small businesses to safely dispose of their toxic waste. The center has collected such things as unused cleaners, leftover paints, pool chemicals and fluorescent bulbs.

The service has resulted in additional protections to area water supplies, the website notes. Last fiscal year, members disposed of 46,376 pounds of waste.
