insurance for waste haulers

Waste Haulers Insurance – Covering a Dirty and Dangerous Job

You may be shocked to learn that the population of the United States generates 254 million tons of trash each and every year (EPA). That’s a huge amount of waste to take away and deal with, but someone’s got to do the job. And plenty of people do. There are 120,000 individuals doing the job of garbage disposal in the US (BLS).

Most people take this whole industry for granted and never think twice about the complex infrastructure involved, but we do. And that’s why we are pleased to offer insurance for waste haulers, recycling companies, and garbage trucks: we’ll keep these businesses moving.

Waste businesses require coverage

Hauling and processing our waste is a big-ticket business. The heavy machinery involved has to be incredibly tough and powerful and often takes a beating. It’s also sophisticated and complex. Any hitch in the removal process and people will notice and complain very quickly.  Every one of the trucks, diggers, grabbers, winches, conveyors, and dumpers requires the kind of insurance that can deal with the sheer engineering of waste disposal in a way that makes sure things don’t get backed up.

There’s also a complex logistical web that includes supplies, data processing, and tracking – so business owners need to know that the ‘back office’ end of their waste haulage business is protected as well.

Protecting the risk

When you take all of the above into consideration, you can start to see the dangers. It’s also hard to minimize the risks that come with waste disposal. Trash will always need getting rid of, and expensive machinery will always be required to help remove it.

Other risks associated with waste removal are:

  • Falling objects.
  • Dangerous objects.
  • Hazardous materials.
  • Exposure to severe weather
  • Physical harm and damage.

While XINSURANCE does not provide worker’s comp, you can cover many of the haulage risks by taking out specialty insurance for waste haulers.
