Nova Scotians aren’t doing as good a job of recycling as they think they are.

A recent survey by RRFB Nova Scotia, which manages 83 enviro-depots in the province, showed 98 per cent of people say they regularly recycle. But RRFB says nearly a third of the people they surveyed said they threw recyclable paper in the garbage, and 34 per cent tossed organics in the garbage in the last three months.
