Posse Open House
The Sun City Posse holds an Open House for the public each year in March. The Open House gives Sun City residents and their guests an opportunity to tour our headquarters building at 10861 W Sunland Drive, talk with Posse volunteers, view a cruiser up close, and enjoy exhibits and demonstrations by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office and the local Fire Department. Join us at the Open House and enjoy refreshments and a chance to win one of our many door prizes.
Twice a year, once in the spring and again in the fall, the Posse sponsors a Shred-A-Thon where Sun City residents can bring up to 5 boxes of paper for shredding. We encourage you to take advantage of this semi-annual opportunity aimed at protecting our residents against identity theft. This event is frequently held on the same day as the semi-annual Drug Take Back
Drug Take Back
This semi-annual event is conducted by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s office as part of the National Drug Take Back program. The program encourages residents to sweep their medicine cabinets of unused and expired medications, both prescription and over the counter, so they can be disposed of safely and properly. MCSO conducts the event at the headquarters of The Sun City Posse with the help of Posse volunteers. The event is frequently held on the same day as our semi-annual Shred-A-Thon so residents can kill two birds with one stone.
This popular event gives residents an opportunity to get rid of outdated and unused electronics equipment. Speakers, stereos, computer equipment, old landlines, and TVs tend are the kinds of items accepted at this event. Where possible, these items are refurbished and given to charitable organizations by our event partner, AZStrut. If the item is no longer useful, AZStrut will recycle it responsibly. Most items can be dropped off for free. Some items, such as TVs, are charged a recycling fee. Specifics will be available before each event.
Residential Hazardous Materials Recycling
The Hazardous Materials Recycling event is popular with residents and frequently reaches capacity early in the event. Because it’s an expensive event for the Posse and our local sponsors, we are not always able to offer it annually but it is our goal to do so. The most common product Sun City residents want recycled is old and unused paint. The event is for Sun City residents only; you are required to show ID.
At various times during the year, we host guest speakers on a variety of topics related to the safety of our residents. Most recently, the demand has been for presentations related to Scams & Frauds in our area. Upcoming presentations are publicized in the Sun City Independent newspaper.
