Groton Police Host National Drug Takeback
Every year our environment is needlessly polluted due to the irresponsible disposal of prescription medications. This weekend is your chance to be part of the solution! This Saturday, April 26th, from 10AM until 2PM the Groton Police Department will be hosting a National Drug Takeback Event. So, bring all your expired or unneeded medications to have them properly disposed of.
