The QPD and the DEA are giving people a chance to dispose of their unused prescriptions this Saturday from 10 a.m.-1 p.m. in Quincy. Residents can bring in their expired, unused, or unwanted medications to the police substation in the Quincy Mall.

Police say the service is free and they won't ask any questions.

  • controlled substances
  • non-controlled substances
  • over-the-counter substances
  • liquid products (in sealed containers)

Not accepted drop-offs:

  • intra-venous solutions
  • injectable
  • syringes

Quincy police said that state and local law enforcement agencies across the country along with the DEA collected 371 tons of unwanted prescriptions on National Prescription Drug Take Back Day in April.
