It's time to clean out the cabinets, and dispose of all the medicines you're not using.  

Saturday, October 26, 2013 is National Prescription Drug take-back day.

The FDA has guidelines on how to properly dispose of your unwanted prescription drugs or over-the-counter medicines.

This Saturday the DEA has teamed up with local agencies to create collection sites.

One QCA drop off location is in Aledo, Ill.

Simply take your unwanted or expired drugs the city parking lot just east of the Aledo Police Station.

Police say the drop-off location will be a drive through, where you just drive through the parking lot and drop off your unwanted, unused prescription drugs.

Aledo Police Chief J. Michael Sponsler says there is no tracking and no questions asked.

"You just drop them off and drive away."

They'll accept plastic bottles and glass containers and also syringes, but will not accept any syringes with needles attached.

Nothing with needles will be collected.

In addition to the Aledo location, there are also drop offs in Muscatine, New London, Burlington, Kewanee, Galesburg, Sterling, Cedar County, and Carroll County.
