GRAHAM School has scooped a gold certificate in this year’s Recycling Awards scheme run by Scarborough Council.

They were judged on the amount of recyclable waste they collected including: blue bin recyclables, textiles, batteries and electrical items.

Steve Jackson, a science teacher at the school, said: “The school as a whole has made a fantastic effort to recycle as much waste as possible. Not only have the students and teachers played their part but they have in turn been supported by those people working in the offices as well as the cleaning staff.”

Donna Gaddass, a recycling education officer with the council, said: “Schools can make an important contribution towards reducing the amount of waste going to landfill, and we hope these awards will encourage the schools to recycle as much of their waste as possible and strive to improve on their school’s performance for next year.”
