City of Talladega hosts E-recycle Day Event
April 12, 2023
(Talladega, AL) To assist residents in disposing of unwanted electronics, the City of Talladega invites the community to participate in E-Recycle Day on Friday, April 21, 2023, at Wehadkee Yarn Mills on West Battle Street from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
City Clerk Joanna Medlen, who has spearheaded the initiative since 2019, said, “The City of Talladega’s Spring E-Recycle Day event helps conserve resources and natural materials while also reducing the likelihood of unwanted electronic items being discarded on the side of the roadway.”
Items accepted include computers, monitors, keyboards, cables, power supplies, printers, cell phones, printer cartridges, televisions, Christmas lights, hair dryers, curling irons, microwaves, VCRs, DVD players, telephones, battery backups, scanners, extension cords and small household appliances.
“Our e-recycling drive is growing steadily. We are collecting more unwanted electronic items and, as a result, helping to improve the environment; beautify our community; and restore a sense of pride in Talladega,” said City Manager Seddrick Hill Sr. “I am thankful for the city employees, community partners, and residents who help ensure the success of this important initiative.”
Residents eager to declutter their homes dropped off over 20,000 pounds of unwanted electronic items during recent e-recycling events.
Recycling of the electronics is done by Protec Recycling. For more information, please call Ms. Medlen at 256-362-8186 ext. 1026
