|Recycling of white paper
|Each class has a recycling bin in which the class collects white and contaminated paper. The Eco club collects the paper once a week and sorts out white paper and contaminated paper. Once our school receives the Mpact recycling dome, we would dispose all white paper within the dome and bag all the contaminated paper separately. This is an ongoing process.
