What started with scrap metal recycling through Acme Iron & Metal in San Angelo has expanded to include a Materials Recovery Facility and scrap metal recycling program. With a history in the scrap metal business, Texas Disposal Systems has always focused on diverting valuable metal for beneficial reuse. We accept scrap metal at our disposal locations for recycling from commercial, industrial and residential customers.
Metal is brought to our metal pad a variety of ways. TDS maintains a metal buying location at the TDS Austin Landfill where ferrous and non-ferrous metals, from aluminum cans to cars, are purchased by TDS. Industrial or commercial customers call on TDS to haul away larger amounts of metal to be recycled, which is brought to the TDS metal pad where it is graded, sorted and baled for recycling, or utilized in the Resident Artist program.
