Smash My Trash® is transforming the commercial waste industry in the Winston Salem East & Greensboro West, NC area.



We were so excited to see that the Triad of North Carolina was still available when we looked at buying a franchise.

We looked at multiple locations when we were exploring where we wanted to start our new business and the Triad met all of the requirements we had set, an international airport, multiple businesses in a very compacted area and a very friendly customer base.

We are so excited about the ability to help businesses reduce their hauling costs.


The Triad is one of the fastest growing areas in North Carolina. You have all aspects of a great community with over five major college universities, major sporting events, home of the ACC Conference, an industrial town in Greensboro and a professional town in Winston Salem. The Triad has great weather, very friendly people and a great selection of restaurants and social activities.

Some of the most important local communities we serve include:

  • Greensboro
  • Winston-Salem
  • High Point
  • Lexington
  • Thomasville
  • Kernersville

Andy Ronemus


I started my career in college athletics as the promotions director at Ball State. I then sold for Xerox, JNJ and Boston Scientific. Twelve years ago I left the corporate world and start out on my own. I worked with two startups before buying my first franchise in 2014, an Unishippers Franchise. In 2017, I purchased a Lendio Franchise, helping businesses find funding when they were turned down by traditional sources. When I found Smash in 2021, I sold my Lendio franchise and joined my partner, Jesus Gonzalez as we purchased the Triad area of NC. I have been married to Tracie for 34 years and have two children, Baylor 29 and Drew 28. We have two dogs, a mini aussie and my best friend Rudi, a rescue basset.
