Stericycle operates with an unrivalled and extensive fleet of specially developed collection vehicles that service our customers, large and small, across the UK and Ireland.
We have over 20 strategic transport locations covering the Highlands of Scotland right down to the South East corner of England.
With this unrivalled national coverage and infrastructure, we have the resource and capability to deliver sustainable waste management solutions that meet all Duty of Care obligations.
For large volume waste collections, we utilise purpose-designed, double-deck vehicles with a large volume capacity. For small volume collections, or for customers with site restrictions, we operate a fleet of small vans making daily collections from customers throughout the UK.
We also use fleet management technology to monitor our vehicles and increase efficiencies by tracking driving behaviour, engine idling and fuel usage. The data collected is used to improve solutions for our customers and increase performance.
Where appropriate, Stericycle vehicles used for waste collections operate in accordance with the UK Carriage of Dangerous Regulations; these enable the rigorous “Accord Dangereux Routier” (Economic Commission for Europe regulations concerning the international transport of dangerous goods by road), or ADR Regulations. Additionally, our drivers are fully trained in clinical waste handling and hold an appropriate ADR vocational training certificate. Non-drivers involved in the Carriage of Dangerous Goods receive appropriate ADR awareness training as part of their induction process.
Part of the Dangerous Goods Regulations is a requirement to appoint a Dangerous Goods Safety Adviser (DGSA); we have our own internal DGSA and also work with other external professionals to ensure that our customers’ requirements are always considered in any regulatory discussions.
To ensure we stay up to date and operate in accordance with current legislation, our DGSA receives regular professional update training and conducts site audits in accordance with our Business Management System.
