J.J. Richards was established in 1932 and is the largest privately owned waste management company in Australia. The company is owned and managed by the family of the founder, Joseph John Richards, who won the first refuse and sanitary collection contract in Murwillumbah Shire replacing the Council operated horse and dray collection system with automotive vehicles.
