Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant Will County Executive

I am honored to serve as your Will County Executive. As a lifelong resident of this great county, I have witnessed many changes as we have evolved from an ag-community to a major hub in the global distribution market.  I am dedicated to building upon this status but I am equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for the nearly 700,000 residents and thousands of businesses and organizations that call Will County home.

Please explore our website which is filled with important information about services and departments within the County Executive office as well as connections to other county officials’ websites.

Will County is diverse, vibrant and filled with hard-working people. We have room to grow and we look forward to a great future.

Will County Hosting Four Recycling Events in September

The Will County Resource Recovery and Energy (RRE) Division will be hosting several recycling events in September, including three collection events and an educational seminar. 

“These community recycling events are a great opportunity for residents to responsibly dispose of items during Fall cleaning,” said Will County Executive Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant. “Our Land Use Department works to ensure that these recycling collections are spread out across the entire county, so residents can access these free collection events as they are able.”

To help residents learn about what types of items are “curbside acceptable” for recycling or are better for collection events, the RRE Division is partnering with Troy Township to host a free Educational Seminar on September 7 at 6 p.m. in Shorewood (25448 Seil Rd.). Will County’s Recycling Specialist will offer an in-person program on recycling both common-place and unusual items, and tips on whether they are able to be picked up curbside or not. Attendees are encouraged to bring pictures of any specific items they have questions about for the presenter.

Will County’s annual Fall Recyclepalooza event will take place on Saturday, September 9 from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m. in New Lenox. The event offers free disposal of a variety of household items, including recycling, household hazardous waste, Styrofoam, and both scrap wood and metal. Residents can also donate items for reuse, including textiles, clothing, toys, books, and small home goods.

An appointment is required to drop off items at this popular event and the address will be made available to residents after their appointment is made. Residents can visit www.willcountygreen.com to register and for a list of accepted items. Registration ends at 8 a.m. on September 8. Volunteers are also needed to help the event run smoothly. Residents can sign up for volunteering at https://tinyurl.com/WillVolunteer

The RRE Division is also partnering with the Will County Fairground Association to host a Waste Tire Collection Event on September 16 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Will County Fairgrounds in Peotone (710 S. West St.). Only non-heavily soiled tires from cars, tractors, and small truck tires will be accepted. Residents must be able to unload their own tires. Registration is not required for this event.

Additionally, a free Electronics Recycling Event will be hosted on September 23 from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm at the parking lot of A-Team Recyclers in Shorewood (304 Gregory Ct.). Registration is not required for this event.
