BOSTON (AP) — Officials are urging residents to drop off any unused prescription drugs at locations across Massachusetts as part of National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day.

The Cambridge, Waltham and Saugus Police Departments are among the law enforcement agencies hosting collection siteswhere people can safely dispose of expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs. National Prescription Drug Take Back Day is taking place Saturday between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh's office says there are collection kiosks at several locations across the city, including downtown, Brighton and Jamaica Plain. The locations are open year round, there is no charge for disposing the drugs and residents can do it anonymously.
