Texas Disposal Systems is now partnering with Austin Habitat for Humanity. It will help recycle waste used at Austin Habitat for Humanity sites by turning untreated lumber, brush and wood into compost, which will eventually become mulch, and separating and recycling other products. TDS is also donating products from its organic gardening line Garden-Ville such as its simple soil, black dyed mulch and 15-gallon trees as well as donating volunteer hours.

To kick off the partnership, Mark Cummings and Sheryl McLaughlin of KLBJ’s “The Austin Gardener” show will be holding a gardening seminar at the Austin Habitat for Humanity ReStore 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday. The ReStore is at 500 W. Ben White Blvd. austinhabitat.org/restore
