Stericycle, Inc. provides regulated and compliance solutions to healthcare and commercial businesses. The company engages in the collection and processing of specialized waste for disposal, and various training, consulting, recall/return, communication, and compliance services. It operates integrated regulated waste management networks in the United States, Argentina, Brazil, Canada, Chile, Ireland, Japan, Mexico, Portugal, Romania, Republic of Korea, Spain, and the United Kingdom. The company’s worldwide networks include a total of 181 processing facilities, 214 transfer sites, and 97 other service facilities. The company’s regulated waste processing technology is primarily autoclaving, and it also uses incineration and its proprietary electro-thermal-deactivation system (ETD). The regulated solutions that the company provides include medical waste disposal, hazardous waste management, its Steri-Safe medical waste and compliance program, its Clinical Services program, its Sharps Management Service featuring Bio Systems reusable sharps containers, pharmaceutical waste disposal, and medical safety products. The company’s compliance solutions include training, consulting, inbound/outbound communications, data reporting, and other regulatory compliance services. In addition to its regulated and compliance solutions, the company offers regulated recall and returns management solutions, which include various services for various businesses, and consist primarily of managing the recall, withdrawal, or return of expired or recalled products and pharmaceuticals. Regulated Waste Services and Operations Collection and Transportation In various respects, the company’s regulated waste business is one of logistics. For regulated waste, the company supplies the appropriate Department of Transportation approved containers to its customers. The company’s fleet of transportation vehicle then collects containers at the customer location. The waste is then transported directly to one of its processing facilities or to one of its transfer stations where it is combined with other regulated waste and transported to a processing facility. The company’s use of transfer stations in a ‘hub and spoke’ configuration improves the efficiency of its collection and transportation operations by expanding the geographic area that a particular processing facility could serve thereby increasing utilization of the facility by increasing the volume of waste that it processes. Processing and Disposal Upon arrival at a processing facility, containers or boxes of regulated waste undergo a quality control process to verify that they do not contain any unacceptable substances. Any container or box that is discovered to contain unacceptable waste goes through a corrective action process, which could include redirecting the waste, returning the waste to the customer, and/or notifying the appropriate regulatory authorities. Upon receipt at a processing facility, expired or recalled products are counted and logged, and controlled substances are stored. In accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions, expired or recalled products are then returned to the manufacturer or destroyed in compliance with applicable regulations. Hazardous wastes are bulked together or consolidated at treatment storage and disposal facilities for transport to final disposal or processing. These wastes are then sent to third parties for incineration, recycling, landfill, water treatment, or fuel blending. Regulated medical waste is processed using one of several treatment or processing technologies, primarily at one of the company’s wholly-owned facilities. Autoclaving Autoclaving treats regulated waste with steam at high temperature and pressure to kill pathogens. Autoclaving alone does not change the appearance of waste, and some landfill operators may not accept recognizable regulated waste. In this case, autoclaving might be combined with a shredding or grinding process to render the regulated waste unrecognizable. ETD The company’s ETD treatment process includes a system for grinding regulated waste. After grinding, ETD uses an oscillating
