NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah – Officials with a medical waste disposal facility that has found itself at the center of protests by environmental activists say they are “seriously considering” moving the facility.

Stericycle has taken steps to secure property in a remote part of Tooele County, but the details have not been finalized.

Stericycle Vice President Selin Hoboy said in an email to FOX 13 News Friday that the facility could continue operate in North Salt Lake, as they are in compliance and are not legally compelled to move—but he said the company believes moving is a “better option for us.”

Details of the move pertaining to legislative approval and permitting are still being worked out.

Stericycle came under fire from activists after falsifying documents and emitting more pollution than their permit allowed.

FOX 13 News will have more information as it becomes available.
