Our online tool is available to customers that produce less than 5,000 kg of healthcare waste every year

  • Step 1 - Register with your site details, including your 7-digit Customer ID and 3-digit Site ID.
  • Step 2 - Once registered, log in to complete your audit. The tool is quick and easy to use and will guide you through the whole process.
  • Step 3 - Within 24 hours of completing your audit you will receive an emailed response and your audit results. A copy of these results will be added to your Stericycle account and can be produced for the regulator on request

For customers that produce over 5,000 kg of healthcare waste every year there are three ways of completing your audit

  • Option 1 - Stericycle can complete this for you. Please contact your account manager or email for a quote.
  • Option 2 - You can employ a third-party consultant (for a fee) to complete your audit.
  • Option 3 - You can complete the audit yourself. However, unless you are very familiar with the regulations or guidance in force this can be problematic to complete and carries a high risk of being non-compliant.

If you have questions, we can help

Failure to complete a waste audit could result in your waste contractor being instructed by the regulator to cease healthcare waste collections until a valid audit is received.  If you have any questions about if, when or how to complete a waste management audit please contact:
