As part of our commitment to protecting our communities and planet, Stericycle joins with like-minded organizations to shape a healthier and safer world for everyone, everywhere, every day.

Arbor Day Foundation

Stericycle established a partnership with the Arbor Day Foundation to support tree replanting efforts in May 2022. In April 2023, we completed our year-long project to plant over 80,000 trees in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom. These reforestation efforts will help restore habitat, improve air and water quality, and sequester carbon in areas damaged by human activity and natural disasters.

According to estimates provided by the Arbor Day Foundation, Stericycle’s reforestation efforts during the first year of the partnership will result in the following positive impacts to the environment over the next 40 years:

  • Sequestering 76,548 metric tons of CO2 (equivalent to 16,641 fewer cars on the road)*
  • Avoiding 17,950,811 gallons of water runoff (equivalent to 203,986 people with cleaner water)*
  • Removing 270 tons of air pollutants (equivalent to enough oxygen for 20,106 people)*

The Arbor Day Foundation’s mission is to inspire people to plant, nurture, and celebrate trees. With the help of its members, donors, and partners its programs help make our world greener and healthier. This aligns with Stericycle’s mission to protect health and well-being in a safe, responsible, and sustainable way.

National Park Foundation

In 2021, Stericycle announced a $1 million, five-year commitment to the National Park Foundation, the official nonprofit partner of the National Park Service, to support landscape and wildlife conservation with a focus on wetland restoration. The National Park Foundation’s mission is to protect national parks and connect people to the wonder of parks, aligning well with Stericycle’s mission to protect health and well-being in a safe, responsible, and sustainable way. Stericycle’s contribution will help wetland restoration efforts at the Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve in Jacksonville, Fla., as well as the Cumberland Island National Seashore in Saint Marys, Ga.

Our partnership with the National Park Foundation will support efforts to improve coastal resilience in both parks by implementing a nature-based solution known as a pervious oyster shell habitat (P.O.S.H). These constructed habitats will help provide an effective defense against the impacts of climate change, and the shorelines will benefit from decreased erosion, improved water quality and restored ecosystems.

The National Park Foundation raises private funds to help protect more than 85 million acres of national parks through critical conservation and preservation efforts and connect all Americans with their incomparable natural landscapes, vibrant culture, and rich history.

Tony Hawk, Skateboarding Legend

Shred-it®, a Stericycle Solution, has announced a two-year collaboration with one of the world’s greatest professional skateboarders, Tony Hawk, to highlight the importance of safely shredding documents, hard drives, and other forms of physical data. 

"I’m excited to partner with the pros at Shred-it®," said Tony Hawk. "I’ve been safely shredding skate ramps for years, but when it comes to safely shredding personal information, I’m a total amateur.  By teaming up with Shred-it®, we’re helping to raise awareness about the importance of physical data destruction to help protect against identify theft.” 

Tony Hawk is a legendary skateboarder, entrepreneur and founder of The Skatepark Project. He became a pro skateboarder at the age of 14, and, by 16, was considered the best competitive skateboarder on Earth. A World Champion for 12 years in a row, he continues to skate demos, exhibitions and competitions internationally and remains the most recognized action sports figure in the world.
