Firefighter Dumpsters® started out as R&R Dumpsters in Weatherford, Texas. R&R was founded by two firefighters, Battalion Chief Richard Ward (ret.) and Captain Randy Wilson. Within 18 months of opening, they had 94 dumpsters in service generating $700,000 in annual revenue. What was their secret? The community found out that R&R was run by a couple of firefighters and they delivered as promised.
In 2016, Richard met Mark Lucas, an accomplished entrepreneur. Mark was greatly intrigued by their concept and thought that if the reliable service provided by R&R could be combined with the respect given to firefighters, a great business could emerge. Soon after, Richard, Randy and Mark launched Firefighter Dumpsters® as a franchise.
