Cullman Electric Cooperative is helping members celebrate Earth Day the week of April 21-24, 2015, with several activities focused on recycling, conservation and energy efficiency.
Tuesday and Wednesday, April 21-22, 2015
Cullman EC offices in Cullman (Eva Road) and Addison (Hwy 278)
Document shredding is a safe and smart way to recycle old paper. Identity theft is a real threat, and can take years to fix credit fraud and recover from financial losses. Cullman EC is working with Alabama Archives to provide secure document shredding barrels so personal documents can be properly and safely disposed.
Bring the materials you need shredded to Cullman EC’s offices in Cullman or Addison on Tuesday, April 21, and Wednesday, April 22. The service is free to our members. Any paper items that include information about credit cards, social security numbers, bank accounts, old bills or other private information should be considered for secure document disposal. There is a limit of three (3) bags or boxes per member household.

Thursday and Friday, April 23-24, 2015
Cullman EC office on Eva Road
Cullman EC is working with JCR Recycling to offer two days of electronics recycling. In today’s world of constantly evolving technology, it’s easy to find small electronics that stop working or simply don’t get used sitting around the house. Don’t throw those items away. Recycle them! Bring your small electronics to the Cullman EC office on Eva Road, and drop them off at our temporary recycling center.
Small electronics include items such as cell phones, digital cameras, desktop and laptop computers, TVs and computer monitors, video game systems and more. (As a general rule, “small electronics” are items that one person can carry. If it takes multiple people to load, unload or move an item, it will not be accepted).
Cullman Electric Cooperative is a member-owned cooperative serving more than 42,200 member accounts in Cullman, Morgan, Lawrence and Winston counties.
