According to The Daily Progress, Crutchfield at Rio Hill is now offering electronics recycling. There will be a nominal fee (the article mentions $15 for an air conditioner, $10 for a TV) and Crutchfield employees will help unload large items. Thomas L. Frederick Jr., executive director of RSWA, is quoted as saying that the new Crutchfield recycling center could keep 15 to 20 tons of electronic equipment out of landfills each year. Eligible items may be dropped off during regular business hours: Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m., and Sunday, noon to 5 p.m.
I just called Crutchfield and they told me that they’re taking that holy grail of recyclables: computers. It’s illegal to toss ’em in the trash, but you’ve got to drive to Richmond to recycle them. Not anymore: $8 for the computer, $5 for the monitor (CRT). Totally worth it.

Yet another reason to buy electronics at Crutchfield. You may pay a little more (they don’t price-match) but the employees’ knowledge of the service after the sale are simply unmatched. We are lucky to have such a company here.
Thank goodness, I can remember when people thought Crutchfield was stupid for not selling his business in the late 90’s for 100’s of millions. Now the prosective buyers are almost all out of business.
Wow, I didn’t know about this, and I work at Crutchfield.
Wait, just got an email about it. Hah! Employees will be able to recycle their stuff for free!
