The city is home to the University of Southern Mississippi, a public research university founded in 1910 that boasts a student population of more than 14,000, and William Carey University, a private Christian liberal arts college operated by the Mississippi Baptist Convention.

Located just 65 miles north of the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Hattiesburg is within shouting distance of the fabulous riverboat casinos that populate the shoreline of southern Mississippi. Closer to home, Hattiesburg is home to an extensive parks system that features twenty-nine city parks and a host of recreational facilities that include the Hattiesburg Zoo and David Anthony Tennis Complex. Longleaf Trace is a Rails to Trails Conservancy project that features 39 miles of paved hiking and biking trails, paralleled by a 23-mile equestrian trail that runs from the University of Southern Mississippi to Main Street in downtown Hattiesburg.
Hattiesburg is located just fifteen miles north of Paul B. Johnson State Park, a 1700-acre expanse of parkland situated on the shores of Geiger Lake, a popular recreational lake known for fishing, boating, swimming, and waterskiing. The park is home to several popular seasonal events, including the annual Hattiesburg Fourth of July fireworks display and Hattiesburg Fall Festival, held each October with a fishing rodeo, children’s games, hay rides, haunted trail, and more.
Hattiesburg is home to several distinctive districts that exemplify the history of the city. The Mobile Street District pays homage to the city’s African American heritage and features several significant historic sites that include the Eureka School and Mt. Carmel Baptist Church. The Oaks Historic District is home to fabulous homes constructed during the early 1900s that include Pinehurst, a 1928 Neoclassical home built on the original site of the estate of Hattiesburg founder William H.

Hattiesburg’s state-of-the-art medical community is comprised of several excellent hospitals and healthcare facilities dedicated to serving the needs of Hattiesburg and the surrounding 19-county area of southeastern Mississippi. Healthcare facilities include Forrest General Hospital, a 512-bed medical and surgical hospital that is the flagship facility of Forrest Health, a regional healthcare conglomerate that includes Regency Hospital, a long-term, acute care facility specializing in comprehensive pulmonary care for patients with acute or chronic respiratory disorders.
One important aspect of the healthcare community that is often overlooked is medical waste disposal. Proper handling, storage, collection, transportation, and disposal of medical waste and biohazardous waste are vital to the safety and health of healthcare professionals, patients, hospital workers, waste workers, and the community at large.
Hattiesburg’s medical waste disposal is regulated by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ). DEQ regulations state that all generators of medical waste are required to have a medical waste management plan in place that addresses the handling, storage, collection, transportation, and disposal of all medical and biohazardous waste. Medical waste generators include, but are not necessarily limited to, hospitals, doctor offices, medical clinics, nursing homes, mortuaries, funeral homes, morgues, veterinary practices, and dental offices.
Medical waste is defined by the Environmental Protection Agency as any solid waste that is generated in the diagnosis, treatment, or immunization of human beings or animals, including human blood and blood products, contaminated sharps, pathological and microbiological wastes, and contaminated animal carcasses.
Improper collection, transportation, and disposal of medical and biohazardous waste present a potential threat to the environment and the community. That is why it is vitally important to have a medical and biohazardous waste disposal plan in place that includes pickup, transportation, and disposal of medical and biohazard waste by a licensed professional.

Founded in 1882 by pioneer lumberman and civil engineer William H. Hardy, Hattiesburg was named in honor of Hardy's wife Hattie. The town was incorporated two years later with a population of 400. Hattiesburg's population first expanded as a center of the lumber and railroad industries, from which was derived the nickname "The Hub City." It now attracts newcomers to the area because of the diversity of the economy, strong neighborhoods and the central location in South Mississippi.
