Castleton School has been recognised with an award from the borough council for its recycling efforts.
The school achieved a gold award for the amount it has recycled over the past year with almost any goods remotely recyclable being put in recycling bins.
The blue bin recyclables, textiles, batteries and electrical items put aside for recycling were totted up using a points system.
Calculations showed that Castleton was not only worthy of a gold award – but the highest ranking school in the whole of the borough.
Jane Douglass, headteacher of Castleton School, said: “We are delighted to get this award, it is a whole community effort and typical of the support we get for our school.
“Well done to everyone.”
The awards were introduced by Scarborough Borough Council’s recycling team and this is the second year they have run.
