EVERY classroom and office at Farlingaye High in Woodbridge has a paper recycling bin as part of the school's bid to go green.
Teaming up with the Sort it at School scheme, 135 bins have been delivered to the school to enable everyone - staff and pupils - to recycle paper quickly and easily.
The school's new Green Council has made paper recycling one of its first priorities.
The council, which comprises more than 40 students from all year groups, was set up earlier this year to raise awareness and help the school become more environmentally aware and aims to make Farlingaye a recycling centre for the surrounding community.
Green council member Ed Johnson, 17, said: “It is brilliant that the school has found the money for these bins. It is very important that we recycle our paper - and this means that everyone will be able to do so throughout the school.”
Council co-ordinator Penny Tyndale-Hardy said: “It's really difficult in a school of our size to co-ordinate recycling effectively, so I'm delighted that we are able to have a proper designated bin in every classroom and every office.
