New Bedford, MA – Medical Waste Disposal

Although the sixth-largest city in the state of Massachusetts, New Bedford is most well-known as “The Whaling City”. This is due to the fact that it was one of the most important whaling ports in the 19th century. While this has drastically changed in today’s environmentally conscious world, New Bedford port is renowned for its sailing and as a home port.

The original inhabitants of the area were the Wampanoag tribe and early English Plymouth Colony settlers purchased what is now New Bedford from the tribe. This topic has been the source of controversy as it is questioned whether this was a legitimate purchase. The main reason for the question is that like many native tribes, they did not share the European concept of land ownership and instead may have thought that they were simply granting the rights for use of the land only. The settlers built a colonial town of Old Dartmouth and a portion of the area was called Bedford Village. After the American Revolutionary War it was recommended that the name be changed to New Bedford after a leading English aristocratic house of The Dukes of Bedford.

Most of the population and the surrounding communities were populated by English Protestants, Welsh, Scottish and the Dutch until around 1800. By this time many of the Irish immigrants were showing up in Massachusetts and then later in the century the area saw an influx of Portuguese and French Canadians. By late 19th century the communities began to grow with the newest immigrants from Poland as well as Jewish families. Many of these new residents brought with them their business and merchant knowledge and the area began to experience a growth in textiles and manufacturing.

Today’s community of New Bedford has become an ecological sanctuary with estuaries and fishing among the islands that dot the area. The beauty of the area has been expanded as the city proudly includes both the harbor as well as ponds and brooks within the city limits. Health of both people and land is an important topic in this area and New Bedford has an array of hospitals, clinics and private practices for the community. The hospitals include: St. Luke’s Hospital and Vibra Hospital of Southeastern Massachusetts.
