Appropriate Disposal of Prescription Medications
In addition to the semi-regular Drug Take-back Days hosted buy our very own Groton Police Department, the Nashua River Watershed Association (NRWA) has started and initiative to allow more regular acceptance of unused or expired medications.

The NRWA encourages everyone to properly dispose of unnecessary medications, including ones for pets, by taking them to the permanent drop box located your local police station. This service is free and anonymous. Just cross out your name and any identifying information on the label before dropping them in the box. Proper disposal prevents these pharmaceuticals from contaminating our drinking and groundwater supplies, which is a risk if they are flushed or thrown into the trash. It also prevents them from being stolen or misused. Proper disposal will benefit humans, fish and other aquatic life.

This project is funded by the Massachusetts Environmental Trust. If you would like more information, please contact Martha Morgan, NRWA Water Programs Director at (978) 448-0299, or email MarthaM@NashuaRiverWatershed.org.
