23 Apr The Dirt on Garbage Collection: Why Specialty Insurance is a Must
Customized Insurance for Garbage Collectors and Garbage Collection Companies
It’s a dirty job, but somebody’s got to do it. Garbage collection and hauling is big business in the U.S. In fact, on Manta alone — the largest online community for small businesses — there are over 16,175 companies listed under “Garbage Collection” in the U.S. Thus, XINUSRANCE has stepped in to provide insurance for garbage collectors and garbage collection companies.
The garbage collection industry has grown steadily over the last past years. According to IBISWorld, “The Waste Collection Services industry has benefited from rising industrial, construction and commercial business activity. Expansion in these sectors has led to greater waste production, thereby generating demand for industry services.”
While garbage collection is vital for every business, every home, and city, it is laden with danger — due to driver overwork and fatigue, crashes, and fires in the hopper, not to mention garbage “juice.” In New York City overall, private sanitation trucks killed seven people in 2017.
