Shredding and Recycling Day – May 6

The next RR HOA shredding and recycling day will be Saturday, May 6, 2017 from 9-11 a.m. Shredding cost: $5 (cash) per bag or box; computer hard drive crushed: $5 (cash)

Magic Shred will take any paper documents that you need to shred, but please remove paper from 3-ring binders as they’re unable to shred metal. We can’t take these binders. You’ll be able to have all of your personal papers (bank statements, tax returns, etc.) shred for $5 per box or bag. There will be HOA staff available to unload your vehicle so you don’t even have to get out of your vehicle.

Computer Crushers will take virtually any computer or electronic device (cell/house phone, speakers, old chargers, cables and batteries). There will be a $5 charge to crush hard drives. They will also take those old floppy discs and shred them offsite. If you want to watch the hard drive get crushed it would speed up the process if you remove the drive. They will still take the old computer. They will not take old televisions but said Best Buy has taken them in the past. Contact Best Buy in advance to make sure they have space, and they will also help unload your TVs.

City of Denton will have a Drug Disposal Service and Battery Drop-Off again this time. You will also be given a brochure on the City of Denton’s Hazardous Waste Curbside Drop-Off Location and the items they will accept. We will not be accepting hazardous waste at the recycling event. The Denton Drug Disposal program will be here to help familiarize the residents about this program. This service requires a Denton police officer accompany the disposal kiosk due to legal requirements for the possessing, transporting and disposing of controlled substances. If you miss this opportunity or need to dispose of drugs during the year there is also a disposal kiosk available at the Denton Police Headquarters, 601 E. Hickory in Denton.

Bring any medications that are expired or you no longer need in the original bottles or containers.

Cross out your name if it’s a prescription drug

Don’t empty the medications into plastic Ziploc bags

For your safety we ask that you don’t park your vehicle and walk to the shredding sites due to vehicles moving through the parking lot/driveway. We ask that all vehicles (cars/trucks/golf carts) form a line at the south end of the parking lot.

On the website closer to the event you can click on the map of the parking lot to help you understand the traffic flow for this event. We appreciate your cooperation in following the directions.

If you have any questions or need additional information on these services contact Althea Parent at 940-246-1002.
