Creative Recycling, a Tampa Fla. electronics recycling company, introduces a new recycling machine called "David" that automates work that workers used to do by hand, or with several different machines, or by outsourcing to other companies. Jerry Powell, editor of E-Scrap News, a trade publication based in Portland, Ore., said that David is not the first machine of its type in the world, but that it is one of the first in the United States. The machine costs about $3 million. Jon Yob, Creative Recycling's president and chief executive, said David was designed for his firm by RRT Design & Construction (, a company in Melville, N.Y., that builds all kinds of recycling machinery.
