The Intercontinental Hotel in Boston has a range of green initiatives that include everything from an extensive recycling program to a rooftop apiary. Recently, the hotel changed over 550 reading lamps in their guestrooms and contacted the RecyclingWorks hotline for advice on what to do with the old fixtures. RecyclingWorks connected the Intercontinental Hotel with EcoBuilding Bargains in Springfield, which sells used building materials and  fixtures (now available for purchase).


RecyclingWorks in Massachusetts is a recycling assistance program for businesses and institutions. For more information on reuse or to access assistance setting up a recycling or composting program, call our hotline: (888) 254-5525 or email us at
