Waste & Recycling Insurance

The waste & recycling industry is very diverse and the type of insurance covered required will largely depend on the type of operation. Some covers will of course be obligatory, but others will be down to owner's mind-set in terms of covering the business and its assets for peace of mind.

2014 has been a dramatic year for the industry with a number of insurance providers withdrawing from the market owing to a series of fires. The insurance providers that remain a source of cover for clients are very cautious in their approach and are selective with the risks they accept.

Because of the volatile nature of this business it is important to partner with a broker that has the expertise and capabilities to arrange bespoke cover, as well as assisting on Risk Management solutions.
