Residental Trash and Recycling Collection

Trash and recyclable collections within the Town of Groton is a complicated issue. 
To help you determine how your trash is handled where you live in Groton.  You will need to know what Fire District you reside in. If you don’t know this, it can be obtained from your property card that is on our websites’ GIS mapping system.  You can access the Town of Groton GIS mapping system by visiting:

Once you have determined your Fire District, see the guidance below.  Each fire district may offer to collect more than the State mandated items.  Contact them directly for details on their waste removal and recyclable collection programs.
