This year, California put into place legislature requiring all businesses, residents, and multi-family properties in certain locations to separate and recycle organic waste and recyclable materials from trash. This effort aims to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and also route surplus food to people in need.
How does this impact coverage for businesses in California?
We will continue to see an uptick in activity for recycling businesses, transportation companies, and food manufacturing & distribution companies. This is a great opportunity for producers to write new business and help their clients secure the right coverage.
Insureds involved in the activities above should carry Contractors Pollution Liability coverage and consider Site Pollution, Transportation Pollution, and other lines. Read more on environmental insurance products.
