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 String Light Recycling Offered Throughout the Year

Will County Executive Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant is reminding residents that the county offers string light recycling throughout the year. Will County is also offering three special Joliet drop-off locations until January 31.

“With Holiday decorations being packed away, this is a great opportunity for people looking to retire their string lights,” said County Executive Bertino-Tarrant. “Lights can spend decades in our local landfills. That’s why we provide multiple recycling options for residents throughout the county.”

Residents can recycle lights at eight year-round electronics collection sites around the county. The drop-off sites are located in Bolingbrook, Peotone, Channahon, Frankfort, New Lenox, Wilmington, and Manhattan.

The three special drop-off locations, managed by the Will County Land Use Department’s Resource Recovery and Energy Division, are located inside the main entrances of the following county buildings in Joliet:  

  • Will County Office Building, 302 N Chicago Street
  • Will County Land Use Department, 58 E. Clinton St.
  • Will County Sunny Hill Nursing Home, 401 Doris Ave.

Drop-offs can only occur during regular business hours (8:30 AM – 4:30 PM), Monday through Friday. Only string lights will be accepted at the drop-off locations.

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