Why should I partner with the Risk Strategies Waste & Recycling Practice?
The Risk Strategies team has the breadth and depth of industry experience needed to understand the details that make your business unique, as well as the risk and exposure implications of those differences.
A hands-on approach to cataloging the details and mapping the risks they entail means nothing gets overlooked. The freedom to pursue structures outside the mainstream of conventional insurance approaches, including guaranteed cost, flexible deductibles, single cell captives, and group waste captives, means you’ll get proven innovation designed for your individual business operations.
In the high-hazard businesses of waste and recycling operations, insurance is necessary, but it's only half the battle in effective risk management. You need effective tools that can help lessen and prevent losses altogether.
Our team can help with a targeted, practical approach to loss prevention and control; collaborating on customized programs designed to identify and address specific areas of vulnerability in your operations.

What are common risk factors in waste management and recycling?
Every waste and recycling company is different and a “one-size-fits-all” approach to risk management and insurance isn’t viable in an industry where variation is the norm. From equipment and personnel mix to geography, climate, business and operational processes, you need people who can understand the details that make your business work.
Your business faces a vast range of exposures daily. A driver’s workers' compensation back injury claim one day; a pollution claim at a transfer station the next. An employment practices claim might be sparked in the office, or a fatal landfill accident could trigger a potentially catastrophic liability claim. Fires at recycling facilities.
With these high-risk exposures, waste hauling and recycling see more than their share of insurers come and go. Our market longevity means you get experts with experienced knowledge of the insurance market landscape as solid as the relationships they’ve built over decades in the business.
