Governor James R. Thompson and the Illinois legislature created HWRIC in 1984 with a well-defined mission in mind. The new Center would combine research and education; information collection, analysis, and dissemination; and direct technical assistance to industry, agriculture, and communities in a multidisciplinary effort to solve Illinois' hazardous waste problems. HWRIC works to achieve these objectives through its three closely linked programs -- Research, Industrial and Technical Assistance, and Information. Since January 1985 when the first staff members were hired, the Center has become fully staffed, its three programs have been successfully launched, substantial progress has been made toward each of the Center's major objectives, and plans for the Hazardous Materials Laboratory are well under way.
