Welcome to Will County, Illinois Website

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. 

Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant, Will County Executive

Will County to Hold Annual Textiles and Small Home Goods Collections May 8-12

Will County will hold its annual week-long textile and small home goods collection May 8-12 at the County Office Building, 302 North Chicago St. Items will be accepted in the building parking lot between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. daily, with extended drop-off hours from 5:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, May 12.

A wide range of items will be collected for reuse and recycling during the week, including coats, shirts, pants, neckties, hats, sneakers, towels, bedding, boots, and shoes. Items with mold, mud or other dirt will not be accepted.

“This is a perfect ‘Spring Cleaning’ opportunity for all Will County residents,” said Will County Executive Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant. “This popular event provides a responsible option for disposing of your clothes and home items. Donated items will be repurposed, reused or recycled, instead of being sent to our landfill.”

The collection event is hosted by the Will County Land Use Department’s Resource Recovery and Energy Division. The event is free and open to all County residents.

The County is partnering with Helping Hands, which distributes usable textiles, second-hand clothing and small goods to thrift stores. Their efforts keep millions of pounds from being sent to landfills.

WJOL’s Scott Slocum will host his morning show live from outside the County Office Building from 5:30 to 9 a.m. on Friday, May 12. Slocum will interview staff from the RRE Division to discuss best practices for residents related to recycling, reuse, conservation, and clean energy.
