Smash My Trash® is transforming the commercial waste industry in the Savannah, GA area.
We saw Savannah as our first home and the home of the single largest and fastest-growing container terminal in America. Environmental incentives with Smash My Trash’s business model spoke to us immediately and we were certain we could provide exceptional service to the many warehouses and businesses in and around Savannah to make a larger environmental and savings impact as the Port was facing substantial growth.
COMMUNITIES WE SERVE
Savannah is the oldest city in Georgia. It is rich with southern hospitality, history, and charm. Savannah is also Sam’s hometown and where we lived when we were first married. Most see Savannah as a tourist location with a rich culinary scene, trendy boutiques, and ghost tours, all set under a veil of Spanish moss. You can go from a lively rooftop restaurant in Plant Riverside District to having your toes in the sand on the quiet North Beach at Tybee. All around this tourist adventure is a thriving and growing Port of Savannah that is currently the 3rd largest Port in the US. The Port’s success is boosting economic growth with jobs, revenue gains and economic prosperity. It is a great time to live and serve around the City of Savannah.
Some of the most important local industries we serve include:
- Black Creek
- Garden City
- Port Wentworth
- Richmond Hill
