In 1977, brothers Bob and Jim Gregory founded TDS with one customer, one truck and plenty of determination. With a deep commitment to customer satisfaction and environmental responsibility, the brothers began to turn their independently-owned business into an award-winning and household name.
Four decades later, and still under the direction of Bob and Jim Gregory, TDS is now one of the largest independently-owned resource management companies in the country. With more than 1,000 employees, TDS has offices in Austin, San Antonio, Georgetown, San Angelo, Alpine, Weimar and Sealy.
TDS also operates the TDS Landfill, the Materials Recovery Facility, five transfer stations and several large-scale composting operations. Additionally, TDS owns several other business entities, including TDS Metals, Texas Organic Products and Garden-Ville.
