Dozens of police departments across Connecticut are taking part in the semi-annual Drug Enforcement Administration sponsored prescription drug take back.
Now in it's 7th year, the DEA holds the events twice a year, in the Spring and the Fall to allow citizens to properly dispose of unwanted, expired or unused prescription drugs.
Residents can dispose of any prescription pills or patches, but the DEA cannot accept liquid medications or needles.
Many police departments in Connecticut now offer safe disposal boxes in their lobbies year round.
Since the start of the program, more than 8.1 million pounds of prescription pills have been turned in.
The program is free and completely anonymous, police will not ask any questions of a person during in the drugs.
Saturday's take back runs from 10 a.m - 2 p.m. (unless otherwise noted below) at the departments listed below:
