Company Overview

From medical waste and document destruction to compliance solutions, the Stericycle team has been protecting what matters since 1989.

A Team of Purpose-Driven Individuals

Stericycle is a U.S. based business-to-business services company and leading provider of compliance-based solutions that protect people and brands, promote health, and safeguard the environment. Since our founding over 30 years ago, we have grown from a small start-up in medical waste management into a leader across a range of increasingly complex and highly-regulated arenas, serving healthcare organizations and commercial businesses of every size. 

Family of Brands

We serve customers in the U.S. and 16 countries worldwide with solutions for regulated medical waste management, secure information destruction, compliance, patient communication, and brand protection.

Today, many organizations have a multitude of strict regulatory guidelines and quality controls that impact how they do business. Large or small, businesses can't always do it on their own. We have the expertise and experience to take on complicated and essential services, ensuring companies manage their businesses compliantly and safely.

Our National Network

Over the last 3 decades, we have provided reliable medical waste service across the country, partnering with healthcare workers to protect what matters.

As the leading provider of medical waste services in the United States, Stericycle has the scale, expertise, and experience to handle complicated and behind-the-scenes essential services. Our team members are part of your community and ready to support you every day, including times of crisis.

2020 Company of the Year

Stericycle is proud to be named a Business Intelligence Group 2020 Company of the Year for our work during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Medical waste management is an essential part of stopping the spread of COVID-19 and as the largest medical waste provider in the U.S., Stericycle plays a critical role. By safely managing the transportation, treatment, and disposal of potentially infectious items, we help mitigate the spread of infection. Stericycle was there to support the healthcare industry in dealing with the challenges of COVID-19 and quickly adjusted services to support medical waste disposal in some of the hardest-hit areas in America.
