Tuscaloosa is a great place to work and do business. The city is the county seat of Tuscaloosa County and the center of business and industry for west-central Alabama. Tuscaloosa’s strong, progressive economy is home to more than 7,000 businesses based primarily in education, manufacturing, retail, and service industries. The city’s strong educational base contributes to a skilled and educated workforce, of which nearly 35% hold a Bachelor’s Degree or higher, a number well above that of the national average. Affordable housing, low crime, and a cost of living index nearly 10% below that of the national average continues to draw new residents and businesses to the city each year.
UA’s dominative football presence has a mesmeric influence on the city. Everywhere you look, storefronts, buildings, and people are decked out in crimson and white, team colors for the Alabama Crimson Tide football team. Nick Saban is a household name in Tuscaloosa. As head coach of one of the winningest football teams in the history of collegiate sports, he has an almost prophetic presence in this town of 95,000 that bleeds crimson and white from September to January, when the team makes its near-annual pilgrimage to the National Championship Game.

The Tuscaloosa River Market functions as both an event space and seasonal farmers market. Located on the banks of the Black Warrior River in Queen City Park, the market features a variety of vendors selling everything from arts and crafts to farm raised shrimp and homemade jellies and jams.
Tuscaloosa’s entertainment attractions are geared hugely toward the city’s large student population. Popular student hangouts include Gallettes, home of the famous “Yellowhammer” drink, and the Houndstooth Sports Bar, winner of numerous awards and most recently voted one of the best sports bars in the country by Travel & Leisure Magazine. Dreamland Bar-B-Que is a Tuscaloosa tradition, offering the ultimate Alabama barbecue experience with its to-die-for ribs, sausage, and pulled-pork sandwiches. The legendary barbecue restaurant was founded in 1958 by John “Big Daddy” Bishop, who says the idea of opening the restaurant came to him one night in a dream…thus the name Dreamland.

Medical waste disposal is a rarely discussed aspect of the healthcare industry that is vitally important to the health and safety of healthcare professionals, patients, hospital workers, waste workers, and the community at large. Tuscaloosa’s medical waste disposal is regulated by the Alabama Department of Environmental Management (ADEM). ADEM defines medical waste as any waste containing infectious characteristics that may cause or contribute to the risk of infection, illness, or death of persons exposed. Medical waste includes, but is not limited to, human blood and blood products, pathological waste, discarded sharps and surgical instruments, contaminated animal carcasses, and solid waste such as used surgical gloves and soiled bedding, bandages, and swabs.
According to the regulations set forth by ADEM, all generators of regulated medical waste are required to have a hazardous waste plan in effect and must contract with a licensed medical waste disposal company for the collection, transportation, and disposal of medical waste generated by the facility.
