Noted Comparisons between Insurance and the Waste Industry

Life actuaries can tell you how many people will die in a year; the waste industry can show you where the bodies are.

Both industries can help you clean up after a disaster strikes.

A mountain of losses is like a landfill — a good cover can make both smell a lot better.

Always be careful when you ask for a data dump.

Actuaries are always backing into things — so are garbage trucks.

Both can have “containment issues.”

Kids always run to the window when the insurance truck comes around on Thursday mornings.
