    Ok, let me get this straight. People who bought homes in Foxboro, next to a medical incinerator, now want it to move because they don't like the smoke? What about all the refineries, will that be their next target? How about all the cars going by on Legacy and I-15/I-215? And that nasty pollution from the planes flying over their heads to the airport? I seriously doubt that putting Stericycle out of business will improve the pollutants in that area one iota.

    Please deliver all medical waste to the "community activists" and let them take care of disposal in a manner that THEY deem appropriate.

    Few people realize that this medical waste is relatively low level, but comes from the near miraculous work that our many fine hospitals do to save lives. Those life saving efforts are far more beneficial to the community than any possible pollution from Stericycle.

    Ignore the doomsayers and environmental fringe groups and support the life-saving work that take place daily in Utah! Stericycle is part of that process.
