Mark Your Calendar: HOA Shredding and Recycling Day

Shelbi Berg, Activities Director

HOA Shredding and Recycling Day is scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 7, from 9 to 11 a.m.

Shredding cost is $5 (cash) per bag or box and $5 each (cash) to have your computer hard drive or printers crushed.

Magic Shred will take any paper documents that you need shredded, 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.) shredded for $5 per box or bag. There will be HOA staff available to unload your boxes so you don’t need 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 or printers. They also will take those old floppy discs and shred them offsite. They will still take the old computer. They will not be able to take old televisions.

We will not be accepting hazardous waste at the recycling event. The City of Denton will have a drug disposal service and battery drop-off again this time. This service requires a Denton police officer to 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.

* Do not bring any needles or syringes.

* Don’t empty the medications into plastic Ziploc bags. They need them in the original bottles.

For your safety, we ask that you do not park your vehicle and walk to the shredding sites as vehicles will be moving through the parking lot/driveway.

On the website, click on the map of the parking lot to help you understand the traffic flow for this event. There will only be an entrance for shredding and computer crushing since all payment will need to go through the Activities Director. There will be a separate entrance just for drug drop off. We appreciate your cooperation in following the directions.

If you have any questions or need additional information on these services, contact the Activities Office at 940-246-1002.
