Thanks to our customers, Stericycle has come a long way since our founding in 1989. The Medical Waste Tracking Act of 1988 presented us with an opportunity to manage waste for a wide variety of facilities far more effectively and at a lower cost than they could on their own — in full compliance with all regulatory conditions. And we are proud of our record of attention and responsibility to the environment. Our headquarters in Lake Forest, IL is now supported by 45 treatment/collection facilities and 105 transfer/collection sites throughout North America. We are the largest and only national full-service provider, with a growing presence in Asia, Australia, United Kingdom, Ireland and South America servicing approximately 339,000 customers worldwide. In addition, we also serve pharmacies, distributors and manufacturers of pharmaceutical products by managing the return and disposal of expired or surplus pharmaceutical products, including those whose handling is regulated by the United States Drug Enforcement Agency, or DEA, and by managing the recall of pharmaceutical products being recalled by the manufacturer.
