Smash My Trash® is transforming the commercial waste industry in the Charlotte area



Charlotte is a diverse business market and a major hub in the Southeast. There’s a unique mix of large corporate headquarters to local, family-owned businesses in the area. We’re proud to have started our Veteran-owned small business in this amazing city to support our fellow businesses in the city.

Owner Eric Capers has been in the manufacturing, general contracting, and construction equipment rental industries in and around North Carolina and the Southeast for years. Like many others, he couldn’t believe what he was witnessing the first time he saw a Smash My Trash truck. Looking into the business, he drove all around the greater Charlotte area and it became evident the potential impact possible helping Charlotte area businesses save money. Adding a waste compaction service to the area means fewer trucks on the road and a smaller environmental impact for businesses. Here at Smash My Trash Charlotte, we are happy to be part of that solution.


Have you seen our big red Smash Trucks® around town? We are a locally-owned business serving businesses just like yours, and we look forward to serving you.

Let Smash My Trash help you take control of your waste management process through fewer hauls, less expenses, and a smaller environmental footprint. The more we Smash, the more you save.®
