SRCL is dedicated to finding sustainable, environmentally friendly and compliant recovery options for all the waste we handle.
Sustainability is at the cornerstone of our service, and we work in partnership with our suppliers and customers to find the most appropriate method of disposal and containerisation that best suits the waste needs and targets of the organisation in question.
Our Sharps Management Service is an example of our dedication to finding sustainable recovery options for waste and incorporates our Bio Systems reusable sharps containers. For each Bio Systems container used, up to 600 single-use containers are prevented from being treated, thus being instrumental in the reduction of greenhouse gases. Additionally, as containers are re-used, bulky packaging waste from the purchase of single-use containers is also eliminated. SRCL’s Sharps Management Service also estimates a cost saving of between 10% – 20% over the total costs involved in using single-use sharps containers.
Our waste segregation procedures are developed in-line with the latest legislation to ensure our customers manage their waste streams in the most environmentally friendly manner. Working closely with environmental regulators and new technology providers also ensures that our waste disposal operations lead the way across the industry.
As part of our Sustainability Week at Stericycle, we caught up with our Environmental Manager, Elaine Casey to find out more about her key responsibilities and we asked her to share her top tips for working more sustainably.
In this blog instalment, Alan McIver discusses sustainability in waste management and provides an insight into some of the great work Stericycle is doing, as our first Sustainability Week draws to a close.
SRCL is much more than just a supplier to us…we have developed a strong partnership, working jointly on solving service issues and implementing innovative solutions.
