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.

Celebrate Earth Day with Will County

JOLIET – COVID-19 has not stopped Earth Day from arriving or the staff of the Will County Resource Recovery and Energy Division from offering ways to celebrate while sheltering in place.

RRE staff members have been pulling together old presentations and creating new ones to make a page filled with information in celebration of Earth Day, Wednesday, April 22. Take a moment to visit the RRE website, www.WillCountyGreen.com. Click the globe in the middle of the page to see a variety of topics from curbside recycling to ocean pollution.

The first box is a link to the Earth Day passport. The Forest Preserve of Will County, the Health Department and the South Metropolitan Higher Education Consortium have joined forces with RRE to offer an Earth Day adventure filled with at least 50 ways to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day.

Completion of each activity or event earns a point. With the 15th point, participants are entered into raffle drawings for a prize valued at $50 or more. Earn a point just for signing up at www.WillCountyEarthDay.com.

Prizes have been donated by a variety of businesses and non-profits throughout the area to encourage everyone to participate. Top prize is currently a 5th generation iPad from A-Team Recyclers, which will be awarded in September as part of the final round of prizes. Drawings will also be held on May 2, June 20 and Aug. 8, which is every 50 days from the start of the program.

Other prizes include gift certificates, a rain barrel and a vintage metal garbage truck valued at $135 from Homewood Disposal. There are also tickets to the Speedway, Slammers and Cubs. More prizes are listed on the website.

RRE’s electronics recycling program remains open and, while one-day events have been canceled, efforts are being made to reschedule the annual multi-day textile and book collection events held each spring. 

For information about other events, visit www.willcountygreen.com.

The Land Use Department is under Will County Executive Larry Walsh’s office and is led by Director David Dubois.
