Will County to host three household hazardous waste collection events

WILL COUNTY – Just in time for spring cleaning, the Will County Land Use Department’s Resource Recovery and Energy Division will host a trio of one-day residential household hazardous waste collections.

The first, part of Recyclepalooza, will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, April 11, at Joliet Junior College, 2015 Houbolt Road.

Will County is offering an array of recycling opportunities to keep unwanted materials out of the landfill and celebrate the 45th anniversary of Earth Day, said Marta Keane, Recycling Program Specialist & Green Business Relations Coordinator for the Resource Recovery & Energy Division.

Goodwill, Vintage Tech and foam cup manufacturer DART also will participate in Recyclepalooza, giving Will County residents a chance to recycle everything from electronics and scrap metal to foam plastics, textiles and home goods. Medical equipment, such as wheelchairs and canes, carpet and padding, and all types of wood will also be accepted.

Residents may bring American flags for ceremonial destruction, as well.

In addition to Recyclepalooza, household hazardous waste collection events will be held Saturday, May 9, at Bolingbrook Village Hall, 375 W. Briarcliff Road, Bolingbrook, and Saturday, May 16, at the Will County Highway Facility, 25930 Egyptian Trail, Monee. Both events will be from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Items to be collected include latex- and oil-based paint, mercury items, chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, motor oil and medications.
