Recycling Business Insurance

Specialists in arranging cover for the waste management sector


Why do I need specialist recycling business insurance?

The recycling industry is growing rapidly, which means more companies are formed every year. Many of these new companies, though, haven’t given a great deal of thought to their overall risk management strategy.

More specifically, they haven’t considered the role that specialty recycling business insurance or scrap metal recycling insurance can play in protecting them against all of the potential dangers of this industry.

If you would like to talk to one of our recycling or waste management insurance specialists, we’d be happy to help you explore your options, and identify both the actual risks your business faces and how various insurance products can protect against them. Call us today!

What is Recycling Business Insurance?

Recycling business insurance is not one single product, but a category of insurance packages offered by many different insurers. The one thing that all of these insurance packages have in common is that they are highly specialised, tailored to the recycling industry specifically.

They contain protections for some risks that are unique to the industry, and even their ‘standard’ business protections attempt to address your business’ unique risk situation more efficiently.

There are even scrap metal recycling insurance offerings which are more specific to that sub-set of recycling businesses.

What is covered by a recycling business insurance policy?

There are a great many options open to you, and we’ll be happy to walk you through the benefits and pitfalls of each. In general, though, waste disposal insurance most likely includes the following:

  • Various kinds of liability cover – including employers liability, public liability, and several kinds of pollution and / or hazardous waste liabilities.
  • Plant & machinery cover – both to mitigate the cost of repairs and to provide loss of profits protection while it is out of commission.
  • Fleet Cover – both for regulatory compliance and to protect the investment you’ve made in your vehicles.
  • Commercial Property Cover – protecting your buildings, facilities and their contents.

In addition, there are many protections of a more ‘general’ business insurance nature which are still extremely useful to many in the recycling industry. For example:

  • Theft of money and / or stock cover
  • Portable equipment cover
  • Legal expenses cover
  • Goods in transit cover
  • Business interruption cover
