Texas Disposal Systems (TDS), a fully integrated waste services provider in Central Texas, recently received the 2022 Large Business of the Year award from the Kyle Area Chamber of Commerce. TDS leadership cites their recognition as an indication that their collaborative model for community relationships building is mutually beneficial for company and for the communities it serves. Through this model, TDS develops deep partnerships with cities, taking into consideration residential communities, schools, commercial partnerships and public spaces.
“TDS values our strong partnership with the City of Kyle and the customers we serve. We continue to be inspired by the spirit of the community,” said Leticia Mendoza, director of marketing and communications at TDS. “We are committed to providing best-in-class services to the Kyle community and to watching this fast-growing city continue to sustainably thrive.”
TDS provides both residential and commercial solid waste collection for the City of Kyle, one of the fastest-growing cities in Texas. In addition, TDS provides waste processing services to the local school district and has led the initiative to develop Heroes Memorial Park, an educational, reflective and celebratory public space that will serve as a gateway to the community. TDS has committed a total of $1.5 million (half cash and half in goods and services) to the Heroes Memorial Park initiative.
“Heroes Memorial Park will be the cornerstone of our Brick and Mortar District, a 138-acre pedestrian-oriented, mixed-use development within the Plum Creek master planned community. We hope that it will show the world how much the residents of Kyle appreciate the sacrifice of those who protect and serve us,” Kyle Mayor Travis Mitchell said. “This memorial would not be possible without the generous support of our partner, Texas Disposal Systems, and the tireless work and commitment of our city council and staff.”
The Kyle Area Chamber of Commerce’s Excellence in Commerce Awards are designed to recognize individuals, companies and non-profit organizations that have shown their commitment to Kyle’s economic growth and development through their exceptional business practices and commitment to the community.
