National Interstate Insurance Company has announced introduction of a new insurance program for waste operations.

The company is currently accepting applications for accounts with effective dates of 01 February 2013 and beyond, with an aim to market the program through retail agents.

The program focuses on operations including residential, commercial and industrial collection, recyclers, construction and demolition debris removal, transfer stations, landfills supported by a collection operation, material recovery facilities, and accounts with limited liquid waste, if supported by a solid waste collection operation.

Coverages to be offered under the program include auto liability (CA9948 and MCS90 are available where applicable), auto physical damage and general liability.

National Interstate president and chief executive officer Dave Michelson said the waste operations program fits well due to the company’s extensive expertise in transportation insurance.

The company has also appointed insurance industry veterans, John Rich and Marilyn Wilds as product manager and regional underwriting director to ensure success of the specialty program.
