Texas Disposal Systems
Brothers Bob and Jim Gregory founded Texas Disposal Systems, Inc. (TDS), in 1977. With a commitment to customer satisfaction and environmental preservation, TDS has become the largest independently owned, solid waste collection and disposal company in Austin and central Texas and one of the largest in the nation.
The Gregorys founded the company with only $10,000, one customer, one truck and plenty of determination. TDS now has offices in Austin, San Antonio and Georgetown, as well as the TDS landfill, recycling and compost facility located in southeast Travis County, approximately 15 miles southeast of downtown Austin.
TDS has grown and expanded operations since those early days in 1977, now offering a variety of services and products. TDS opened the state’s first totally integrated landfill in 1991. The landfill conducted compost production and recycling operations from the start. TDS expanded their operations into San Antonio in 1995 and into Georgetown in 1998. TOP (Texas Organic Products) was established in 1997, which is a large-scale composting and soil blending operation. Garden-Ville was acquired in 2001 and was established as a retail center for TOP products, which are widely used by horticulture professionals and home gardeners.
