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.

Free book reuse/recycling event offered by Will County RRE, Joliet Park District

JOLIET – The annual Will County book reuse/recycling event will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. June 4-6 at Joliet Park District’s Pilcher Park Nature Center, 2501 Highland Park Drive.

The free event is sponsored by the Will County Land Use Department’s Resource Recovery and Energy Division and the Joliet Park District.

Schools, libraries and members of the general public can bring any unused and unwanted books for reuse and recycling.  All types of hardcover and paperback books will be accepted and shared for free.  

The annual event prevents thousands of books from going unused or dumped into landfills.  Books that are not reused will be shipped for recycling at the end of the three-day event.

Tim Anderson, who coordinates the book collection for the Will County Land Use Department, said, “Our goal is to promote literacy and improve the environment through recycling.”

Due to COVID-19, participants will be required to wear masks; masks will not be available on site. A limited number of people will be allowed in the building at one time. Additionally, outside areas, including a large tent and the nature center’s back porch, will also be available for browsing this year. 

For more information, or questions about the book event, contact Tim Anderson at 815-727-8834, email tanderson@willcountylanduse.com or go to www.willcountygreen.com .
