You’ll find some of the world’s best racehorses in Lexington and if you’re looking for a Chevrolet Corvette fresh off the assembly line, go to Bowling Green.

The State of Kentucky Definition of Medical Waste:
Kentucky does not have specific environmental regulations applicable to medical/infectious wastes generated at healthcare facilities except for air quality regulations pertaining to medical waste incineration. The Division for Air Quality requires that all medical waste incinerators obtain a special permit prior to conducting medical waste incineration.
