Cullman Electric Cooperative is helping members celebrate Earth Day all week long with several activities focused on recycling, conservation and energy efficiency.

Document Shredding

Tuesday and Wednesday, April 24-25

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 24, and Wednesday, April 25. 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.

Electric Vehicles 101 — the future has arrived

Wednesday, April 25

10 a.m. - noon

Cullman EC Training Room

Drew Frye, program manager for the Tennessee Valley Authority’s electric vehicle program, will be at Cullman Electric Cooperative to share the latest news on EVs, including a discussion of vehicles on the market, battery range, charging options and other issues. Guests can also check out what a new EV looks like inside and out.

Electronics Recycling

Thursday and Friday, April 26-27

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 43,000 member accounts in Cullman, Morgan, Lawrence and Winston counties.
