St. Elizabeth's Medical Center uses dumpster to fund programs

St. Elizabeth's Medical Center in Brighton, Mass., has earned about $2,000 since it began selling metal, as well as furniture, from its trash for scrap and reuse. Now the hospital is using those funds to "reinvest," reports the Boston Business Journal. St. Elizabeth's has launched a new domestic-abuse program with the initial proceeds from its recycling program, prompting staff members to volunteer their own time to the effort and boosting recycling efforts across the hospital.
