The Richardson Citizen Police Academy Alumni Association (RCPAAA) will hold our fall Electronic Recycling and Paper Shredding event on Saturday, October 22nd  from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm in the parking lot east of the old Sears store at the Richardson Square Mall. The entrance to the event is from Belt Line Road.

We accept most electronic items – if it has or had a cord or was used with an electronic item, it will probably be allowed. The exceptions are the old tube-style TVs / monitors and batteries. No liquids or hazardous materials will be accepted.

Paper shredding is designed to help prevent identity theft. The recycling and shredding services for up to five (5) boxes or bags are free to local citizens but contributions are encouraged. A minimum donation of $5.00 / box is requested for an excess of five (5) boxes. A box is described as a standard banker’s box which is usually about 10x12x18. Only paper documents containing personal information should be brought for shredding. Other paper items such as newspapers, magazines, and books should be placed in blue recycling bags and set out for recycling pickup by the City.

This recycling event is free (5 boxes of shredding or less) and open to anyone who lives in the north Texas area. Please note that the RCPAAA incurs over $2500 in costs providing the shredding trucks for this event. The RCPAAA is a non-profit organization supporting the Richardson Police Department (RPD) and was founded in 1993. Donations will be solicited to help us cover the cost of this event as well as to help us support the RPD. Among the activities we sponsor at the Richardson PD are our annual RPD Appreciation Meal, gifts to newly hired police officers, gifts to retiring police employees, scholarships to children of RPD employees (both current and retired), and our Retired K-9 Vet Assistance program.
