2005 WMRC Annual Report
The world is changing at an ever-increasing rate. But
there also are things that always remain the same.
One of the most important of these is protecting the
environment. And if you’re running a business,
another one is not wasting your money.
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
Institutions both large and small 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, a role that WMRC has taken on since its
WMRC also 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.
