Stericycle Environmental Solutions, a provider of environmental and regulated waste management solutions, has renewed its strategic partnership with the Retail Industry Leaders Association (RILA) as a 2019 Retail Environmental Compliance Committee member.
This is the sixth year Stericycle has partnered with RILA, a trade association of the leading retail companies in every vertical. RILA represents national brands in retail, including Best Buy, Dollar General, Gap Inc., Home Depot, Lowe’s, Target, Walgreens, Walmart and more.
“As a market leader in waste solutions for most of the Fortune 500 retail companies in the nation, Stericycle is excited to renew and expand our partnership with the Retail Industry Leaders Association,” said Wade Scheel, director of governmental affairs at Stericycle, in a statement. “We recognize that RILA’s members have to go beyond meeting the demands of their customers and operate their businesses in ways that reduce their risk of noncompliance, as well as protect people and the environment.”
Stericycle is one of four exclusive solution providers on RILA’s 2019 Retail Environmental Compliance Committee. Membership on the committee enables Stericycle to participate in RILA in-person meetings, conference calls, joint-speaking opportunities and lead compliance discussions with RILA members.
“RILA and Stericycle share a commitment to helping retailers navigate environmental compliance. This partnership is a great opportunity to now work together toward that shared goal,” said Andrew Sousa, director of environmental programs at RILA, in a statement. “We look forward to driving positive change for our members and building upon our shared successes with Stericycle in the year ahead.”
The government’s increased focus on enforcing regulations can result in fines and violations that are detrimental to retailers. Stericycle’s suite of retail hazardous waste services aims to help retailers reduce their risk of noncompliance and protect their brands.
