The world keeps changing, and the Waste Management &
Research Center keeps changing with it. WMRC is always
looking for the best, most advanced way to help its
customers. The Waste Management and Research Center has
been providing assistance to Illinois businesses and the
public since 1985. WMRC is a non-regulatory service
organization affiliated with the University of Illinois and is a
division of the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.
WMRC has staff located in Champaign, Oak Brook, Peoria,
Springfield, and Brighton.
There are ongoing fundamental shifts taking place in the way
business is being conducted, both in Illinois and nationally.
Institutions are realizing that the environment and economic
health are not competitors but are actually a great
partnership. Recognition of this relationship is the key to
success in the coming decades. Through WMRC's efforts,
Illinois businesses can become more efficient and competitive. Improving the economic climate while protecting
natural resources makes Illinois a better place to live.
WMRC has always had educational outreach as part of its mission. The Center will continue to find new ways to
educate young and old alike about how science and nature can work together.
WMRC's staff is committed to providing real world solutions to real world problems.
