Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Louisville


What do bourbon and disco balls have in common other than being associated with a good time? The majority of each are made right in Kentucky. In fact, 90% of the disco balls in the USA are produced in Louisville and the city is a great place to begin the Bourbon Trail that makes Kentucky famous. 


Aside from the state and city's famous liquor of choice and distribution, the Kentucky Derby is probably the most noted event for this area. Held at Churchill Downs beginning in 1874, the event wasn’t even profitable until 28 years later. Fun fact: it was founded by the grandson of William Clark who explored America with aid from Native Americans. When a horse wins the Kentucky Derby, they are awarded with over 500 roses! We wonder how long it takes to grow that many…

The horse races aren’t even our favorite part of Lousiville (do you pronounce it “lou-ee-vul” or “loo-vul?”). The annual festivals the city puts on each year are truly what brings the community together and people from all over Kentucky into town. Our personal favorite is the Forecastle Festival because it has a strong focus in music and environmental activism which are all values we care deeply about too.

Beyond our love of Derby City, we are passionate about sustainability and safety in healthcare, and this is where our story begins.
