    In honor of National Prescription Take Back Day on Saturday, police departments across New England have set up dozens of sites where the public can take unused prescription drugs.

    The take-back sites will accept and safely dispose of unwanted prescription pills between 10a.m. and 2p.m.  

    According to the Drug Enforcement Administration, anyone can drop off medications anonymously, "no questions asked." 

    The initiative is part of a nationwide effort to cut down on prescription drug misuse. 

    "Do the right thing and do your part," the agency tweeted Saturday. 

    Visit the Drug Enforcement Administration's site for a full list of collection sites near you.
