Community

Serving the local community is part of Texas Disposal System's mission. TDS strives to conduct its business affairs ethically and with integrity. For more than 20 years, we have focused our efforts on helping qualified non-profit organizations raise funds, recognize worthy citizens, and provide educational opportunities. TDS has hosted over 2,000 events at its pavilion and has never charged groups to use our facility, and to date, we have helped those non-profit groups raise over 20 million dollars for their organizations. Although our main mission is to help these non-profits with their fundraising efforts, we also provide donations and sponsorships for qualified organizations. 

 

Recognition

Landfills don’t typically win accolades from their community, but Texas Disposal Systems does things differently. Our dedication to waste reduction and good neighbor practices have caught the eye of other local and national businesses and resulted in a number of awards and nominations for TDS.
