In a world of ever changing technology and increasing waste, ElectroRecycle and the Recycling Council of British Columbia (RCBC) want YOU to demonstrate through film just how easy it is to recycle your small appliances and power tools for a chance to win $5,000.

This year ElectroRecycle is sponsoring RCBC’s Trailer Trashed Film Competition, an environmental movie trailer competition that was created for people to harness their creativity to encourage others to reduce waste and recycle.

In two minutes or less, using classic film genres like comedy, horror, romance, action, film noir, musical, or anything else you can think of, create a film trailer demonstrating just how easy it is to recycle small appliances and power tools with ElectroRecycle. The winner will receive $5,000 in cash, a special screening of their trailer at a gala event on December 3, and eternal glory as the 2014 Trailer Trashed Champion. The contest closes on November 27, so grab your camera and take action!

The time is now. Enter today at For more information on ElectroRecycle, visit

Electro Recylce

ElectroRecycle is the first recycling program of its kind in Canada, and the only government-approved recycling program in B.C. for electrical appliances. The not-for-profit initiative, introduced in 2011 by the Canadian Electrical Stewardship Association (CESA), provides an environmentally friendly alternative for a variety of electrical products such as toasters, blenders, irons, sewing machines and electric toothbrushes that would otherwise end up in our landfills.

More than 300 types of electrical products are accepted for drop-off through the ElectroRecycle program, free-of-charge. It’s accessible and convenient, with over 145 drop-off locations across the province.
