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. In fact, it’s the only one sponsored by the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries (ISRI).
