Our APHIS Disposal and Rejected Cargo Destruction Comply With Your Regulations.

From the one-time pickup to routine service, we provide appropriate transportation, destruction, disposal, and documentation of waste generated from your international flights or ships.

Our team measures and manages the waste and recycling operations from beginning to end. Moreover, we have compliance agreements in place throughout the country to handle your international waste and APHIS waste for airports, caterers, and shipping lines. Our Efficient APHIS Waste Services Focus on Your Time Limits

We understand your urgent requirements and implement programs that help resolve potential waste concerns.

Cruise lines in particular have minimal time to discharge all waste and recycling streams. These time constraints demand careful planning, precise attention to detail, and efficient execution — our specialty.

Ports vary with regard to the local environment and security requirements. When Stericycle manages your operation, ships do not sail late due to waste-related issues. Our Responsive and Reliable Waste Services Offer Peace of Mind.

We offer our waste service at all major international seaports and airports in the continental United States, Puerto Rico, Argentina, Chile, Canada, and Mexico.

We can also help you establish step-by-step comprehensive waste programs for each vessel or plane.


Even when emergencies occur, our team can provide services on a timetable that maintains your regulatory compliance. Our 24/7 availability offers you peace of mind — whether at sea or in the air. We Proficiently Coordinate the Destruction of Cargo Rejected by CBP.

Customs brokers and importers also rely on our extensive network of waste services. The CPB requires a certified destruction of materials that enter the United States. When your cargo is rejected our team coordinates all the logistics to transport the rejected cargo and certify its destruction according to legal requirements.
