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.

Free Annual Book Reuse and Recycling Event to be Held June 2-4

The Will County Land Use Department’s Resource Recovery and Energy (RRE) Division will host its annual three-day book reuse and recycling event from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., June 2-4, at Joliet Park District’s Pilcher Park Nature Center, 2501 Highland Park Drive.

“Our goal for this event is twofold: to promote literacy and improve the environment through recycling,” said Dave Hartke, Director of the RRE Division of Will County’s Land Use Department. “This is a popular annual event, and I’m grateful for Joliet Park District for hosting it again.”

Schools, libraries, and individuals may bring unused and unwanted books for reuse and recycling. Hardcover and paperback books will be accepted and shared for free to attendees. Categories include fiction, non-fiction, children’s, romance, hobby, travel, health and living, religion, textbooks, periodicals, and cookbooks.

The annual event prevents thousands of books from going unused or dumped into landfills. Books are redistributed at no charge to promote literacy in the community. Books that are not reused will be shipped for recycling at the end of the three-day event.

The event is sponsored by the Resource Recovery and Energy Division of the Will County Land Use Department and is hosted by the Joliet Park District.
For more information, residents can call event coordinator Tim Anderson at (815) 727-8834 or visit www.willcountygreen.com.
