Medical & Biohazardous Waste Disposal in Rockford
Halfway between Chicago and Galena, Rockford was known by the early settlers as “Forest City”, named after the valley’s extensive woods, and in more recent times, as the “Screw Capital of the world’ due to the high volume of screws, bolts and fasteners manufactured in the region. It's a city that also contributes heavily to America's rich sporting history in cultivating one of the first all-female baseball teams in the US, the American Peaches.
The natural center of the Rockford area and one of its most recognizable natural features, is the Rock River. Once the backyard for the city’s first settlement in 1834, today the area has been transformed into over 7,000 acres of parkland and is so green that the city has adopted a widespread reputation as the “City of Gardens”.
Only 90 minutes from downtown Chicago, Rockford holds the county seat of Winnebago County and is also home to one of the largest public medical schools in the United States, the University of Illinois College of Medicine. Providing community-based medical training to medical students, residents and fellows, the university is a recognized leader in rural medical education and medical biotechnology.
