Our Corporate Sustainability Mission

Protecting what matters involves striving for excellence in everything we do. We are committed to:

  • Providing specialty waste and information destruction solutions to our customers that protect people and the environment.
  • Managing our operations in full compliance with federal, state, and local laws and regulations as well as our own company policies.
  • Seeking cost-effective supplies, technologies, processes, and disposal options that reduce our environmental impact.
  • Fostering a culture in which all team members have an influence on our environmental responsibility not just as a way of working, but also a way of living.  

Stericycle Environmental Sustainability Highlights Globally

We deliver essential sustainability services that protect the public from harmful wastes, promote recycling and alternative use opportunities, and lead to greater security and well-being around the world. In a single year Stericycle:
