Tales from the world of a Global Broker

Waste pressed into bales at a landfill site | Sparking idea from NW Assekuranz: a new storage structure for landfills and recycling yards

Kindling Idea:
a new storage structure for landfills and recycling yards

Time and again, fires break out on the landfills and recycling yards of a waste disposal company, sometimes causing serious damage. They are often caused by spontaneous ignition: Under certain circumstances, the organic materials stored at the yards heat up und ignite. This is a difficult issue for insurance companies because the causes are foreseeable and the overall damage to such a site (including the technical facilities, the fleet and the loss of income) can be huge – consequently, insurance coverage ist very expensive, if it is offered at all.

But if you take a closer look, it is clear that a few organisational measures can help to significantly reduce both the development and the impact of such damage. Take for example the processing of the "yellow bags" for packaging materials, which catch fire almost regularly due to the reasons explained above. We ensure that when the bags are delivered, they will be stored in a location far away from the valuable production facilities in the future, to be taken to the halls only when the waste is scheduled to be sorted. Now, it is a different story for the insurers – a few hundred burning bags do not cause a significant financial loss, and the fire hazard for the company's other assets and the landfill is reduced significantly after the waste is sorted by type.
