Located in the southwest region of Kentucky is the up and coming city, Hopkinsville. The city is about 24 miles north of Clarksville, Tennessee and 62 miles northwest of Nashville, Tennessee. The area of present-day Hopkinsville was initially claimed in 1796 by Bartholomew and Martha Ann Wood, a couple who traveled from Jonesborough, Tennessee. Following the creation of Christian County that same year, Woods donated some of his land to give the community its foundation. The Woods couple would try to rename the community to “Elizabeth” after their eldest daughter, but another town in Hardin County preempted the name. The Kentucky Assembly established the town in 1804 as “Hopkinsville” after state representative and veteran Samuel Hopkins. Dating back to the settlements of the 1790’s, the city of Hopkinsville has had strong agricultural roots. It has been a strong and consistent leader in the production of corn, winter wheat, soybeans, and tobacco. Specifically, within that last, tobacco production has given the town lots of recreation in the past and modern-day Hopkinsville recognizes that. The “Tobacco War Pilgrimage” is an annual festival that commemorates a period of agricultural crisis, economic boycott, and rebellion that affected every aspect of life in the region. Industries within the city’s regions today have shifted from being solely agricultural-based to having an array of industries that offer wide range of career opportunities. Hopkinsville is the headquarters and primary manufacturing facility for Ebonite International, one of the oldest and largest bowling ball manufacturers. Also located in Hopkinsville, Western State Hospital employs over 700 people in its three facilities. Some of the other top employers within the region include: Jennie Stuart Medical Center, Metalsa, and Hopkinsville Community College. With medical cost constantly on the rise, facilities are forced to look where money can be saved. The medical waste that is produced from a facility is often overlooked when on this search for savings. MedPro Disposal offers cost-effective programs that will save your facility 20-40% annually from your current medical waste disposal costs: medical waste disposal, pharmaceutical mail-back, and OSHA compliance training. Medical waste disposal is MedPro Disposal “bread and butter”. Call us today for a free, no-hassle quote on how much we can save your facility and we will develop a personalized strategy to suit your facility’s needs. Once this plan has been set in action, we start by providing red-lined cardboard boxes that will accumulate the medical waste. Upon your scheduled pick-up date, MedPro Disposal will be at your facility to collect the old boxes. This program is restarted by providing you with new red-lined boxes on that same scheduled pick-up date. Another popular program by demand, is MedPro Disposal’s pharmaceutical mail-back program. This program aims to dispose of all unwanted or unused pharmaceuticals with ease. The 2.5 gallon OTC/Rx buckets that will accumulate the pharmaceuticals, gives you the freedom to dispose at your own pace. Due to the fact that our buckets are only a one-time charge rather than monthly billing to your facility, you can take however long to fill the bucket. Once filled, simply attach the prepaid UPS return label that will come equipped with the bucket, and place it in the mail.
It is crucial that your facilities employees are all compliant on OSHA regulations when handling medical waste. Without the proper training, your facility risks hefty fines and potential bodily injuries. MedPro Disposal’s OHSA compliance training is the solution to ensure your employees have the proper knowledge to be compliant on all regulations. Rather than wasting a day having to travel to a third-party consultant, our training can be done at the simplicity of your facility via online. After each section of the course, multiple-choice questions will be asked to ensure the valuable information is being retained. Completion of the course is than rewarded by a certificate of completion that can be accessed online for filing purposes.

The Civil War generated major divisions in Christian County. Confederate support in Hopkinsville and Christian County was evident in the formation of the "Oak Grove Rangers" and the 28th Kentucky Cavalry. Christian County was the birthplace of Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederate States of America, and several local businessmen and plantation owners contributed money and war supplies to the South. After Confederate forces retreated to Tennessee, however, Camp Joe Anderson was established by the Union to the northwest of Hopkinsville in 1862. Men who trained there became members of the 35th Kentucky Cavalry, the 25th Kentucky Infantry, and the 35th Kentucky Infantry. Gen. James S. Jackson had been a Hopkinsville attorney before the war and was killed in service to the Union at the Battle of Perryville in October 1862. Private citizens who supported the Union cause provided the army with mules, wagons, clothing, and food.
