Will County Offers String Light Recycling All Year

As you’re taking down holiday decorations, please consider recycling your unused or damaged holiday string lights that could spend decades in a landfill.

The Will County Resource Recovery and Energy Division offers year-round recycling for electronics, including string lights. There are also three Joliet drop-box locations for only string light recycling that will be up until January 31, 2024:

  • County Office Building, 302 N. Chicago St, Joliet (M-F, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)
  • Land Use Department, 58 E. Clinton St, Joliet (M-F, 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.)
  • Sunny Hill Nursing Home, 421 Doris Ave, Joliet (daily, 8:30 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.)

Drop offs must happen during regular business hours and are only for string light recycling at these temporary drop-box locations. Boxes are located inside the main entrances of the buildings listed above.

More information on year-round electronics collection sites can be found at www.willcountygreen.com.
