Earth Day 2017 — Document Shredding and Electronics Recycling
For the third consecutive year, Cullman Electric Cooperative will host events in connection with Earth Day. The co-op is once again offering free document shredding and electronics recycling to co-op members the week of April 17-21, 2017.
DOCUMENT SHREDDING — Monday and Tuesday, April 17-18, 2017
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 Monday, April 17, and Tusday, April 18. 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.
ELECTRONICS RECYCLING — Thursday and Friday, April 20-21, 2017
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 42,000 member accounts in Cullman, Morgan, Lawrence and Winston counties.
