Spring Electronics Recycling and Paper Shredding Event @ Richardson Square Mall
Apr 24 @ 10:00 am – 2:00 pm

The RCPAAA Electronics Recycling and Paper Shredding event is held twice a year (Spring and Fall).

This event is located in the parking lot east of Sear’s at the Richardson Square Mall, corner of Belt Line and Plano Road. Entrance to the event is on Belt Line Road.

Hours are from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm.

All types of electronics will be accepted EXCEPT old style CRT monitors and televisions.

Paper shredding is primarily for residents of North Texas and is free. Businesses are welcomed to bring documents for shredding. Businesses will be asked to donate $5 per box (standard banker’s box size).

This event is held in conjunction with the City of Richardson’s Trash Bash.  http://www.cor.net/departments/health-department/health-news-events/trash-bash

This event is our major fundraiser for the year. While the event is free, donations will be solicited to help us support the Richardson Police Department. (RPD).

The RCPAAA pays for the shredding trucks and the cost to provide those trucks increased dramatically for 2021. As a result, we may not be able to provide as many trucks as before. Once the trucks are full, we can no longer shred paper. We encourage everyone to arrive earlier rather than wait until the end to drop off your documents for shredding.

The RCPAAA is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that supports the RPD. We provide meals on special occasions and “goody bags” for those officers and employees who work during the holidays. Scholarships are awarded to children of RPD employees who are entering college. We also provide help covering medical expenses for retired RPD K9s.
