Actually, I’m from the province of Nb. I live in the Maritimes, it’s a gorgeous place and quite clean. Lots of people in Canada pick up bottles from the streets and take them to the exchange, it keeps our communities clean and the people who do the good deeds get back the deposit. It’s not a lot of money but it adds up.. Sadly though lots of people in Canada also are on less than average saleries and will go as far as to look in garbage cans for a bit of pocket change.
