Since we began in 1989, Stericycle has become a leading provider of regulated medical waste management services in North America, the UK, Brazil, Argentina, Chile, Ireland, Romania, Portugal, Spain and Japan, but medical waste disposal was just the beginning. We're constantly seeking to develop new services to help our customers. We are also the leading processor of product recalls and retrievals in the U.S., the leader in communication services for the healthcare field in the U.S., and a leader in the emerging field of "green" sustainable solutions for multiple waste streams and unsalable inventory for hospitals, manufacturers and retailers. In total, we serve over 575,000 customers on four continents.
Throughout our company's history, we've focused on our customers, regulated industries, education, and sustainability — all in support of our core purpose to help our customers fulfill their promise by providing solutions that protect people and brands, promote health, and safeguard the environment.
