Stericycle Welcomes HWM Customers

Stericycle has acquired Healthcare Waste Management (HWM), a regionally-based medical waste disposal and secure information destruction company in the Midwest. We are excited to welcome HWM’s team members and customers to the Stericycle family.

While you will notice some changes in the coming days like the Stericycle and Shred-it logos on driver uniforms and trucks, what won’t change is our shared commitment with HWM to deliver the same great service and value while helping you reduce your impact on the environment.   

We are committed to keeping you updated every step of the way through this transition. And, we look forward to earning and keeping your business as we work together to shape a healthier and safer world for everyone, everywhere, every day.  

Whether you are a local medical office, a national healthcare system, or a commercial business, our commitment to you is to protect what matters. More than a tagline, it’s our promise to help you protect the health and well-being of the people and places around you in a safe, responsible, and sustainable way.

Our suite of essential services helps our customers properly dispose of potentially harmful medical waste, shred confidential information, and protect their trusted patient and customer relationships.

As a Stericycle customer, you’ll benefit from:  

  • Our expansive, nation-wide network and capacity to scale with you as you grow your business.
  • A comprehensive suite of environmental health and safety, compliance, and data protection solutions to meet your needs now and in the future.

Frequently Asked Questions

Stericycle is a leading global provider of medical waste management, secure information destruction, and patient engagement solutions. Since our founding over 30 years ago, Stericycle has grown from a small start-up in medical waste management into the global leader across a range of increasingly complex and highly regulated arenas, serving healthcare organizations and commercial businesses of every size.

Shred-it is an information security service provided by Stericycle that helps healthcare organizations and commercial businesses shred confidential information and protect their trusted patient and customer relationships. Learn More.

By partnering with Stericycle, you now have access to our expansive, nation-wide network; friendly and knowledgeable experts; and an extensive suite of solutions to meet your needs. Best of all, HWM and Stericycle share many of the same values, including a shared commitment to deliver outstanding customer service, innovative and sustainable solutions, and regulatory and compliance expertise.  

Stericycle and HWM are committed to making this transition as smooth as possible for you while providing the same great service and value you have come to depend on.  Examples of changes you may immediately notice include:

  • A new customer number, customer portal, and customer service contact number.
  • Changes to service dates and schedules.
  • Stericycle or Shred-it logos on your invoices, trucks, containers, and driver uniforms depending on the services you use.

We will begin servicing HWM customers effective March 1, 2022. At that time, you may notice some changes like the Stericycle or Shred-it logo on invoices, trucks, containers, and driver uniforms depending on the services you use. 

Many of HWM’s talented team members across the Midwest are joining Stericycle, so you may continue to have the same driver service your facility. As we work through a smooth transition and optimize efficiencies, it is possible that you will be serviced by a different driver. If you utilize both medical waste and secure information destruction services, you will be serviced by two different drivers.

You can access and pay your invoices, download copies of your shipping papers, and view or change your service pickup on our customer portal(s). For regulated waste and compliance service, visit MyStericycle.com. For shredding services, visit MyShredit.com. As a first-time user, you will need to register with your new customer number(s).

In early April, billing will transition to Stericycle. Your invoice will be on Stericycle or Shred-it letterhead, depending on your services. Once you receive your new customer number(s), you can also access invoices on our customer portals, MyStericycle.com and/or MyShredIt.com. Resources to help you read your invoice can be found in the welcome materials as well as the customer portal(s).

We will continue to use the existing inventory of containers and you may see additional inventory options to better meet your needs. Any changes will be reviewed with you by your driver and local service team.

You will be assigned a new customer number from Stericycle. If HWM was providing both regulated waste and shredding services, you will receive two customer numbers from Stericycle. The number(s) will be provided in a Welcome Email(s) the week of February 21, 2022. Customer Service can look up your customer number(s) as well.

Stericycle and HWM are committed to making this transition as smooth as possible for you. As we work to ensure you receive the same great service you have come to depend on, we may need to adjust your service date and schedule. Any changes will be reviewed with you by your driver and local service team.
