  • Dover Police to hold 'Drug Take-Back Day' April 27

    posted on: 4/22/2019

    On Saturday, April 27, 2019, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the Dover Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will give the public another opportunity to prevent prescription drug and opioid abuse and theft by ridding their homes of potentially dangerous expired, unused, and unwanted prescription drugs. Medications can be brought to the Dover Police Department at 46 Chestnut St. for disposal. The service is free, anonymous, and no questions will be asked.

    Dover, like communities across the state, continues to see the impacts of the opioid epidemic. Just last year, Dover experienced 11 fatal opioid overdoses in the city in addition to dozens of non-fatal overdoses.

    “We know there is a strong connection between prescription drug misuse and heroin use," said Police Chief William Breault. "If we can prevent prescription drug misuse we are in turn taking steps toward preventing overdoses. We urge all members of the public to safely dispose of the medications in their homes at the Drug Take Back."

    posted on: 4/12/2019; updated: 4/20/2019

    One of Dover Main Street's flagship activities, Dover Pride Clean Up Day, will be held on Saturday, May 11, from 8 a.m. to noon.

    Dover Pride Clean Up event starts with a pancake breakfast served by the Kiwanis Club at 8 a.m. in the Mill Courtyard, 421 Central Ave. From there, hundreds of volunteers, with help from the City's of Dover's Community Services Department, will rake, prune, sweep, mulch, weed, paint and plant their way through multiple sites in the downtown area. Wentworth Greenhouses donates plants for the planters in the downtown core, which volunteers will help install. The event finishes with a pizza lunch back at the Mill Courtyard sponsored by Kendall Pond Pizza. Bottled water and soda is provided by Seacoast Coca-Cola.

    Clean Up Day is an opportunity for community members to give a few hours of time by contributing some sweat equity to make Dover look its best for the coming tourist season. This civic volunteer effort is an important aspect to help keep the downtown area clean and beautiful throughout the spring and summer, and also provides cost savings to the City of Dover.
