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.
