(a)   No regulated medical waste hauler shall use the streets for the collection and removal of any regulated medical waste without first having obtained a regulated medical waste hauler’s license from the city. No business license shall be issued or transferred under the provisions of this subchapter without the approval of the city. The provisions of chapter 110 of this Code, insofar as the provisions may be applicable and not in conflict, shall apply to and govern the issuance of any license under the provisions of this subchapter.
   (b)   Insurance requirements.
      (1)   Workers’ compensation insurance providing the statutory limits required by state law. In addition, it shall provide coverage B, employer’s liability coverage, of not less than $1,000,000 each accident, $1,000,000 disease–policy limits. The required limit may be met by excess liability (umbrella) coverage;
      (2)   Commercial general liability insurance providing occurrence form contractual, personal injury, bodily injury and a property damage liability coverage with limits of as least $1,000,000 per occurrence, $2,000,000 general aggregate and $2,000,000 aggregate products and completed operations. The required limit may include excess liability (umbrella) coverage. If “occurrence form” insurance is not available, “claims made” insurance will be acceptable; and
      (3)   Automobile liability insurance covering all owned, nonowned, and hired automobiles, trucks and trailers. The coverage shall be as broad as that found in the standard comprehensive automobile liability policy with limits of not less than $1,000,000 combined single limit each occurrence. The required limit may include excess liability (umbrella) coverage. The city’s approval or acceptance of certificates of insurance does not constitute city assumption of responsibility for the validity of any insurance policy, nor does the city represent that the above coverages and limits are adequate to protect any individual, group or business, and assumes no liability therefor.
