We have access to dedicated schemes and rates which are tailored to your trade.

All types of waste can be accommodated including asbestos and other hazardous wastes and our covers have been designed to dovetail the liability and motor fleet covers in particular.

When you’re involved in recycling or waste management, it can be extremely difficult to find someone who’s prepared to insure you. Finding a broker with a good understanding of the sector is key – someone who can minimise the restrictions to your cover while keeping your premiums as low as possible. Our policies cover employer’s and public liability, business interruption and assets such as buildings, machinery and stock. A specialist policy will take account of the nature of your business and the risks you’re exposed to.


How does it protect you?

  • Employers’ liability ­– Recycling & Waste Management Insurance covers the cost of legal action and any compensation awarded as a result of claims made by employees for work-related illnesses and injuries. If you employ staff, this is a legal requirement. The minimum legal requirement is £5,000,000 although most of our policies will cover you for £10,000,000.
  • Public liability – Public Liability Insurance offers valuable protection for claims made against you for third party property damage or personal injuries to the general public. If you are a Skip Hirer and you place skips on the road, or in public places, you may be compulsory for you to have Public Liability Insurance. Levels of cover required by local authorities and councils vary, but these can be between £1,000,000 and £10,000,000.
  • Business interruption – your gross profit is protected if you’re unable to operate at full capacity
  • Buildings and contents – your cover includes plant insurance and the cost to repair or replace damaged machinery

Why you should consider it?

  • Recycling & Waste Management Insurance ensures compliance with statutory Health and Safety COSHH regulations.
  • Having the right cover gives you peace of mind that your income and assets are protected.
  • A specialist policy enhances your professional standing with clients and meets qualification criteria for trade association membership.
  • Many brokers shy away from recycling because they don’t have access to the right insurers.
