The Tri-County Resource & Waste Management Council (TCR&WMC) represents and administers to the needs of the incorporated and unincorporated areas in McDonough, Mercer and Warren counties
The TCR&WMC Solid Waste Coordinator assists in the establishment of new recycling programs, aids in the expansion of existing programs, and has instilled a new can-do attitude in area communities to establish their own recycling programs and take control of their solid waste issues.
The TCR&WMC Solid Waste Educators provide presentations, hands on projects, and solid waste curriculum for both academic and public forums. A library, which includes state certified curriculum for preschool through the 12th grade, is maintained providing immediate resources to teachers. Valuable assistance in grant writing is also available for school waste reduction and recycling funding.
The TCR&WMC is administered by the Western Illinois Regional Council.
