BLANDING, Utah, Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- While consumer advocate Erin Brockovich and the northern Salt Lake City, Utah community of Foxboro loudly protest the human health and environmental hazards of a Stericycle medical waste incinerator in their backyard, the rural community of Blanding in southern Utah quietly disposes of its own medical waste - quickly, cost-effectively and without harmful emissions to the community in which it operates.

The room-temperature process creates no toxic output.
