Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Stericycle has played an essential role by safely managing the transportation, treatment, and disposal of potentially infectious items. We rapidly mobilized to partner with temporary quarantine and treatment facilities in nearly 40 states and more than 4,500 COVID-19 testing sites across the U.S. Beyond our work with healthcare partners, we created a new line of COVID-19 services to help non-healthcare facilities dispose of used personal protective equipment to reduce the risk of spreading disease. 

Today, Stericycle actively supports the growing number of vaccination sites, disposing of millions of sharps and used vaccines safely, securely, and compliantly. Additionally, we support the rapid deployment of vaccinations across the country through our Communication Solutions service line, which assists hospitals and healthcare systems with coordinating individual vaccination appointments through patient hotlines, scheduling services, and appointment reminders.

“Stericycle team members around the world are an essential part of the healthcare community and play a critical role in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Cindy Miller, CEO. “We are honored to receive this recognition from The American Business Awards. As the industry leader in regulated waste and compliance services, we will continue to protect the health and well-being of the people and places around us in a safe, responsible and sustainable way.”
