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



The idea of smashing trash was unique and no one else was offering the service at the time. Having a Smash My Trash franchise would allow us the opportunity to build a business and provide excellent customer service in an industry not known for being service oriented.


Being located in the N.E. Georgia area, we are seeing more and more companies moving out of the metro Atlanta area due to the traffic and congestion. With I-85 in the middle of our service area, we have a major interstate for moving goods up and down the east coast and throughout the southeast. The area provides plenty of open spaces for large distribution centers and manufacturing sites along with an eager workforce, have made this region an attractive area for businesses to relocate or plant roots for their operations.

Some of the most important local communities we serve include:

  • Gainesville
  • Dawsonville
  • Commerce
  • Braselton
  • Winder
  • Monroe
  • Pendergrass
  • Jefferson
  • Athens
