i use this in my /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user to disable the quarantine:

$bad_header_quarantine_to = undef;
$virus_quarantine_to = undef;

In my configuration mail is either rejected during the smtp session or forwarded to the recipient(s) so there is no need to quarantine anything.

Betreff: completely disable quarantine?

How can I completely disable the quarantine?  I don't use it, I've never in 5 or 6 years now had to go looking for something in it...  but I keep finding 50k files in that directory.  Obviously a cron find -exec rm command is an option, but can I simply disable it entirely?

Is the answer to set
  $sa_quarantine_cutoff_level = <same value as spam kill level> ?
