The state of Kansas is located in the Midwestern United states. The capital of Kansas is Topeka and the largest city is Wichita. Kansas is nicknamed as the “Sunflower State” or the “Jayhawker State”. There are nearly 3 million people that live in the state, thus making it the 34th most populous state in the United States.

The origins of name came from the first people who inhabited the area; the Kansa Native American Tribe. Thousands and thousands of years ago, the land that Kansas sits on today was home to numerous and diverse Native American tribes. The tribes that were located in the eastern part of the state mostly lived in villages along the river valleys and tribes in the western part were semi-nomadic.

The state of Kansas is home to one of the most productive agricultural states. The main crops and produce that the state produces include wheat, corn, sorghum, and soybeans. The land that Kansas has is what give the state the ability to produce such great quantity and quality of agriculture. Although the one might think of Kansas having unending Flatlands, there are a diverse topography. To the south are serveral lowlands regions, to the north is comprised of Smokey Hills, and to the east consists of the Arkansas River Lowlands.

Residents and visitors are available to a wide range of amenities. From outdoor activities to top of the line spas and shopping, the state of Kansas has the best of the best. Some of the things that the state is most known for are the Kansas City-style barbecue, Kansas City blues music, and the national professional sports teams. Speaking of great jazz music, the famous Charlie Parker was born in Kansas City in 1920. The Kansas City Chiefs, the NFL team, has only won the Super Bowl once, but that didn’t keep the team from breaking the world record for the loudest NFL stadium in September 2014.

Aiding the nearly 3 million residents that call Kansas home is already a difficult tasks for healthcare facilities. The healthcare facilities within the state range from major medical groups to small mom and pops practices. Medical waste that is produced from theses facilities is tremendous in volume. The Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) have adopted the regulations from the Hospital/Medical/Infectious Waste Incinerator (HMIWI) in the year 2000. In Kansas, medical waste means those solid waste material which are potentially capable of causing disease or injury and which are generated in connection with human or animal care through inpatient and outpatient services. This requirement is label as K.A.R. 28-29-27.
