Created for the recycling industry, by those who know it best. RecycleGuard is a comprehensive, flexible insurance program launched in the US in 1996 after 2 years of exhaustive research. RecycleGuard has catered to meet the needs of an ever-evolving industry. Whether it’s metal, plastic, glass, paper, electronics, textile, or a combination of them all, RecycleGuard is the premier commercial insurance and risk management program in recycling.
