A SCHOOL'S green- minded pupils are rolling up their sleeves to get recycling.
Two schemes are under way at Fairfield School, White Lee Road, Batley, to encourage youngsters to re-use their waste.
The school - for children with severe and complex learning disabilities - has paper recycling and compost bins in every department for pupils to use.
An eco-action team consisting of about 15 pupils has also been set up to help organise green events and raise awareness around the school.
Assistant head teacher Evelyn Hirst said: "With our pupils especially they have to be practically involved in something to gain understanding.
"Just talking about it doesn't really work.
"That is why we have been so keen to develop these initiatives.
"We are also keen to get green bins so we can recycle plastic, too."
The school was awarded Eco-School status by litter campaigners Encams in 2002 and 2004.
