With over 30 years of experience partnering with healthcare organizations, we understand the importance of protecting team members, frontline workers, patients, and communities in times of crisis. In 2014, we were tasked by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to dispose of waste from the Ebola outbreak. Stericycle also provided essential RMW disposal during the 2003 SARs outbreak and the 2009 H1N1 outbreak.
Similarly, we’ve worked closely with federal and state agencies to provide guidance on the best course of actions to properly manage medical waste generated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We continue to work with the CDC, OSHA, the DOT, and state regulatory agencies to help our customers navigate the pandemic and resulting regulatory changes.
We also quickly mobilized operations and created new programs to address the medical waste associated with testing and treatment, PPE disposal in workplace, and the unprecedented influx of vaccination waste from COVID-19. Our work during the pandemic earned us a Business Intelligence Group 2020 Company of the Year Award and a Silver Stevie® Award in the 19th Annual American Business Awards®.
