General Contest Rules
These General Contest Rules apply to contests that are sponsored and administered by 8784884 Canada Inc. operating as Cash for Trash (“CFT“) unless there are specific contest rules associated with a particular contest, in which case those specific contest rules will apply.
By participating or attempting to participate in a contest governed by these General Contest Rules (a “Contest“), you will be deemed to have received, understood, and agreed to these General Contest Rules.
Unless otherwise stated, each Contest is open only to Canadian residents who have reached the age of majority as of the date of entry.
In the event a Contest is identified as being open to individuals who are under the age of majority, those individuals who are under the age of majority must have the consent of their parent or legal guardian to participate in the Contest in accordance with these General Contest Rules.
For each Contest, the following individuals are not eligible to enter:
Additional eligibility criteria may be stated from time to time. For example, to participate in a certain Contest, you may be required to have a valid social media account, note: an account is free to create). Or CFT may indicate that the 30-day rule or the $1,000-rule applies to a particular Contest. The 30-day rule excludes individuals who have won a CFT contest within the preceding 30 days from being selected as a potential Contest winner. The $1,000-rule prevents an individual who has won a prize valued at $1,000 or more in a CFT contest from being selected as a potential Contest winner during the six month period following the win. The 30-day rule and the $1,000-rule will not apply unless otherwise stated.
Any relevant information pertaining to a Contest, such as the start and end dates, start and end times, and details of any prizes available to be won, will be identified by CFT at the time of the Contest by means of CFT’s promotional materials, website, official social networking pages, or representatives. The approximate value of any prize is available upon request during the particular Contest entry period.
No purchase is necessary to enter any Contest. Any applicable entry mechanisms will be identified at the time of a Contest by CFT by means of CFT’s promotional materials, website, official social networking pages, or representatives. Entry mechanisms may include one or several of the following:
Although Contests may be communicated, promoted, or administered by means of a third party social media or social networking service or site (a “Third Party Service“), such as Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook, no Contest is sponsored, endorsed, or administered by any Third Party Service. Any questions, comments or complaints regarding a Contest should be directed to CFT and not to any Third Party Service.

For each Contest where a winner is selected from entries received, CFT will conduct a random draw from among eligible entries received. For each prize to be awarded in the Contest, one entrant will be randomly selected as a potential winner and notified using the information provided at the time of entry. In the event any potential winner does not respond to such notification within a reasonable time period, as determined by CFT, declines a prize for any reason, or does not meet the requirements set forth in these General Contest Rules, as determined by CFT, the potential winner will be disqualified and, time permitting, an alternate potential winner may be randomly selected from among remaining eligible entries, or the prize may be cancelled.

The odds of winning a prize in any given Contest depend on the number of eligible entries received for that Contest and on the application of any criteria used to describe how to enter the Contest.
Once a potential winner is confirmed as a winner, prize distribution will be promptly coordinated. Except as otherwise indicated by CFT, a winner must personally take delivery of the prize as instructed within 30 days of being notified that such prize is available or within such other time period as may reasonably be advised. If a winner fails to take delivery of the prize as instructed, the prize will be deemed forfeited.
