Pole Base® Products and Solutions
Our new product, Precast Pole Base®, uses TDS’ new precast concrete plant to produce ready-to-install Pole Base® foundations with structural integrity and dimensions built to your precise specifications. Our turnkey Pole Base® products improve the quality and durability of your projects and may help support those projects aiming for LEED certification.
Precast vs. Cast-in-Place
Our precast pole bases eliminate some of the common issues electrical contractors face including poorly-set forms, wire rebar complications, and excessive wait times on concrete trucks. With TDS Precast Pole Base®, electricians can complete their job quickly and cleanly, allowing for more installations within a shorter amount of time.
Precast Light Pole Bases
With Pole Base® precast light pole foundations, you can dig holes, set bases, run lines and stand light poles all in the same day with the same equipment. These foundations are built to spec and are ideal for quick turnaround jobs because they require zero wait time on concrete trucks or concrete to cure.

TDS Concrete Recycling and Pole Base®
TDS Concrete Plant to Create Pole Base® Products
We are utilizing our concrete plant to create Pole Base® and Redi-Mix products. Our priority to divert as much waste as possible from the landfill holds true as we begin our Pole Base® and Redi-Mix production. These concrete products can support your projects aiming for LEED certification.
Concrete Recycling at TDS
According to the EPA, roughly 50 percent of materials put into the landfill are concrete and demolition debris materials. When landfilled, these items reduce air space and lead to higher disposal costs.
Concrete and demolition recycling, on the other hand, is a cost-effective way to dispose of construction debris. At our fully-integrated facility, these materials can be processed on-site, which leads to a greener ecosystem and a more economical solution to putting heavy debris into the landfill.
By recycling concrete and demolition materials, we keep heavy, non-compactable rubble out of the waste stream and reduce airspace in the landfill, which saves money and natural resources.
This cost-savings gets passed on to builders, creating a more affordable way to dispose of concrete and demolition remains while also creating building materials for the projects of tomorrow.
What TDS Accepts
We accept clean concrete – with and without rebar – for recycling. Additionally, we accept clean rock base material such as, but not limited to, brick, granite, tile and asphalt, provided that the items are properly prepared as clean recyclables. We also have the capability to recycle other construction and demolition debris including lumber, wood and brush. Items must be free of contaminants such as paint, liquids or hazardous materials.
