Smash My Trash® is transforming the commercial waste industry in the Atlanta Northwest, GA area



The North Georgia and Atlanta area is special to me and my family. My wife and I met while attending school at The University of Georgia and have lived in Canton, GA since 2001. We love raising our children here, rooting on the UGA Dawgs, cheering on our kids’ lacrosse teams and other activities, and being involved in our community.

That’s why I got involved with Smash My Trash. Our compaction strategy enables Atlanta Northwest businesses to save money and reduce trash hauls — neatly and hassle-free.

After more than 25 years working for companies such as RTM Group, Nortel Networks, Pirelli Tire USA and PECO Pallet, with a focus on supply chain efficiency, logistics and customer service, it was evident that I could use my skills by servicing local area businesses. I’ve come to appreciate how much customer service and logistics matter— even in trash removal. Your waste management company should make commercial dumpster management easy, efficient, and cost-effective.


Our Atlanta Northwest operation is based in Cherokee County, GA where “The Metro Meets The Mountains”.

The Northwest area of the Atlanta Metro is rapidly growing with new communities, local businesses and large corporations calling this area home every year.

As described, the Atlanta Northwest area has the best of the bustling activities and opportunities of the Atlanta Metro that meets up with beautiful foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. It is a a great place to work, live and play!
