At Texas Disposal Systems (TDS), we strive to make a long-lasting and positive investment in the future. We also believe the future starts with today’s students; which is why we started the TDS Eco Academy program.
TDS Eco Academy is a program designed to help minimize waste in Central Texas schools by educating K-12 students about trash, recycling and composting options on their campuses.
The program provides training, along with signage, curriculum and other educational materials for staff, administrators and students with the goal of making learning fun and enabling real-world application. Each school’s participation is documented and diversion data is made available on the Eco Academy website. With these reports, participants can see firsthand how their actions are affecting positive change, and can even enjoy healthy competitions between classrooms and other schools in their district.
TDS is thrilled to offer this valuable program to schools who currently utilize our services (aka partner schools), and we’re proud to be partnering with the Austin, Eanes, Georgetown, Pflugerville and Round Rock Independent School Districts as well as Valor Public Schools, with ongoing training and signage throughout their campuses.
To learn more about the Eco Academy program, we invite you to continue exploring our website. If you have any questions regarding whether or not your school is eligible to participate, please contact us.
