WITH more than 79 years of industry experience, Australia’s largest privately owned waste management company J.J. Richards & Sons offers the mining and resources sector innovative and integrated solutions for all waste management needs. J.J. Richards has established programs throughout Queensland’s Bowen Basin on behalf of clients such as BMA, Rio Tinto, BMC, Peabody, Xstrata and Anglo Coal. More recently, the company also experienced expansion into the Surat Basin.
The team at J.J. Richards provides one point of reference for all waste management services, freeing a site’s environmental manager to focus on other important on-site duties. Trained and dedicated J.J. Richards site supervisors and on-site technicians take care of day-to-day waste management needs, tailoring solid and liquid waste management services to meet the specific requirements of each site. This integrated management approach maximises solid and liquid waste diversion and recovery, and provides monitoring, collection and disposal of regulated waste. The system also manages scrap metals and refurbishable items, provides routine clean-ups, and identifies continual improvement opportunities through regular monitoring of key performance indicators with site managers. “The key advantage of the J.J. Richards total waste management approach is our proven ability to take care of all paperwork, external invoicing and reporting as well as being a resource to the mines,” J.J. Richards environmental services manager Ken Martin said.
