Compliant, Safe, and Sustainable Hazardous Waste Solutions

Stericycle provides organizations an opportunity to increase their sustainability achievements while properly disposing of hazardous waste. 

Customized Solutions Provided by a Global Leader in Managing Regulated Wastes

Hazardous waste must be characterized, profiled, packaged, and transported in accordance with strict procedures and guidelines, while disposal must be managed in properly permitted treatment, storage and disposal facilities. The regulations which govern and affect hazardous waste are regulated by the municipality, province, and respective federal authorities. Stericycle has innovative solutions supported by over three decades of experience and expertise in driving compliance and sustainable solutions.

We provide customized solutions for manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors and retailers in the healthcare, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, consumer products, animal health, food, and automotive industries.
