See the latest claims news on disposal facilities, recycling centers, and more

From waste haulers to landfills, Beacon Hill has successfully written a number of waste-related accounts over the years. Our country generates a lot of waste, and regardless of where it’s coming from, it must be handled, transported, and disposed of according to strict guidelines.

The claims and lawsuits relating to waste keep coming---landfill runoff, construction debris, fires at recycling plants, and battery concerns at e-recycling facilities---and businesses understand how important pollution coverage is to addressing these exposures.
