BELLES ORDURES

  • Broadcaster

    Historia (Canada)

Profession: trash picker. Behind the wheel of their truck, Michel and Patrice stalk the streets of the lower Laurentians on the lookout for small treasures tossed in the garbage. Be it old metal for the scrapyard or antique finds, nothing escapes them in their quest to to give a second life to objects they find in the trash – and making money while they’re at it! Nicolas and Mesla, two young artisans/scrap finders, harness their energy and creativity in the radical transformation of items found in their neighbourhood’s dumpsters. Meanwhile, Joyane’s real passion is the restoration of old objects and discarded furniture. Welcome to the world of the trash hunters!
