Medical waste is nothing like the garbage we throw out at home. Also called biohazardous waste and biomedical waste, these items have to the potential to injure or even kill people because of their exposure to bodily fluids and tissues which may be infectious.
Indiana defines hazardous waste as materials which may cause or significantly contribute to an increase in mortality or an increase in serious irreversible, or incapacitating reversible, illness; or pose a substantial present or potential hazard to human health or the environment when improperly treated, stored, transported, or disposed of, or otherwise managed.
Hazardous wastes come in many forms. They can be liquid, solids, semisolid, or contained gases. They can be manufacturing process byproducts, sludge or spent materials or simply discarded products. Whatever their form, proper management is essential to protect human health and the environment.
In Indiana, medical waste is regulated by the Indiana Department of Environmental Management and information about rules and regulations, definitions and descriptions can be found at this website.

Merrillville is located on what used to be woodland that belonged to the Potawatomi Indians. In 1834, a clearing was created for ceremonial purposes and was called McGwinn Village. A year later, a white man by the name of Jeremiah Wiggins settled in the place; McGwinn Village thus gave way to Wiggins Point.
