That process alone was an education, and we can pass all the benefits on to our students! We’ve already created a successful system that has been put through the test of time: refined and adjusted over the years to tackle new problems as they arise. With the Waste Academy you can start day 1 lightyears ahead of where we were when we first started. On top of that, you can have continuous support! There is no reason for you to reinvent the wheel!

You will learn:

  • Why the trash industry is actually a very SEXY business. Hint: it’s recession proof! After all, there’s always Trash.
  • How to create a niche for yourself in the waste industry without buying expensive equipment
  • The differences, benefits and drawbacks of the franchise markets and the open markets
  • Different types of residential waste services and the problems that customers face, so you can create win-win solutions
  • How we analyze invoices to implement more efficient and cost effective waste programs for our clients
  • How to help waste customers solve their problems
  • How to Identify and correct billing errors that cost waste customers a lot of money

In short, you’ll learn everything that you need to know in order to become your own boss and create a REAL business that not only blesses your family, but also the community. Trash might sound boring and unconventional, but for those that catch the vision, the possibilities are endless!

Hey, I’m Josh

Growing up in a family of contractors, I saw first hand how hard my grandpa, dad and uncle worked running their own construction business. I always admired their hard work and dedication and the successes they achieved. After college, I thought I wanted to join the family construction business. However, it didn’t take long for me to realize that construction just wasn’t the business for me.


I moved on to a sales job, where I learned a lot, but that entrepreneurial dream was still in me. So, I started looking for opportunities when a friend of mine told me about a mail-order class he had taken on waste brokering. I was really interested and immediately saw the vision of how I could bring the sales skills I had developed in my job as well as the relationships I had built together to help launch this new business venture.

This course is about how we created a successful business in the waste and recycling industry. Traditional waste and recycling services for both residential and commercial waste customers is a very “old school” approach, leaving customers with a bland service that continues to cost more and more every year! You can create value for waste customers in both the residential and commercial waste and recycling industry by implementing creative solutions. We’ve built an entire business doing just that. We’ve also helped cities, counties, and other public sector entities meet and exceed their waste and recycling goals.

Twelve years later, we have a thriving, cutting-edge waste business, and we want to help others launch their waste businesses. We know how big this industry is, and we truly believe there is so much room for other entrepreneurs out there to have success in the waste and recycling industry. We can’t wait to help you get started, you’re NEXT!


  • How can I start a waste company without any trucks or expensive equipment?

We don’t own a single trash truck! We aren’t haulers. We are consultants. This program will teach you how we started our business and how you can too. You don’t need expensive equipment to run a successful waste business. You just need hard-work, determination and a drive to learn something new!

  • I don’t know anything about waste/recycling. Is this a good fit for me?

Don’t worry, we didn’t either. We literally started knowing absolutely nothing. This course is the launch pad we wish we had when we first started. Plus, we are here to help guide you through this process. We have structures that go from limited support to full one-to-one training. This field is wide open and ready for entrepreneurs like you to jump in! Don’t waste another minute! Get in and start learning!

  • Waste Haulers seem like they are all “big-business” corporations or big players. How can I even compete with these big players?

There are SO many niches in the waste industry. Through this course, you will learn exactly how we created our own niche to fill in gaps the “big players” were leaving out.

  • I don’t have a lot of money to launch a new business. How can I start a new business without a lot of extra money laying around and without taking out a loan?

We didn’t either!! You can be successful in this business. It takes a lot of hard work, commitment to learn, and a determination to succeed, but YOU can do it! Although owning equipment or another service related company that compliments trash can be extremely beneficial, we started our company without making any major investments and didn’t choose to invest in any supplemental companies for over 8 years, and you can too.

  • Why are you giving away all of your secrets? You have a successful business. Are you afraid someone else will compete with you?

This industry is MASSIVE!!! There is more business out there than we can even shake a stick at! Our goal is to help you become successful! We aren’t afraid of competition. There is plenty of business to go around!

  • I don’t want to grow a big company. Is there a way for me to work this business as a side-hustle?

Absolutely!! We are so glad you asked! Our program is flexible! If you want to start your own business and not use our software or assistance, you are completely free to do that, and we will be your biggest cheerleaders. However, if you want to partner with us, we have tech platforms that help us manage our waste programs! You can have access to those platforms and our customer service team! There is also the side-hustle opportunity! Find and send us deals, and we will pay you! It’s as simple as that! You don’t have to create the programs, manage the customers and billing, etc! Spend time doing what you do best: finding deals!

Are you ready to make trash your treasure?

Benjamin Franklin once said, “in this world, nothing is certain except death and taxes.” Well, we’d like to add one more thing to that list: trash! If 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that life is full of uncertainties. In the world of business, risk is inevitable! Hedge your risk! Start a business in an “essential” industry that grows by the day!! Make trash your treasure!

This course will put you on the path toward success in the waste and recycling industry.

You will finish this course with a solid base knowledge of the industry and all kinds of creative ideas for how to help your future clients save money, solve their problems, and simplify their processes. This course is meaty and full of PDF’s and videos that will educate you even more!

This is your chance to cash in on trash!

The only thing standing in your way is yourself. I can’t wait to see you on the other side!
