Will County Green

WillCountyGreen.com was launched on Nov. 15, 2010 as part of the educational efforts of the Will County Energy Efficiency Strategy with funding from the U.S. Department of Energy.  The mission of this website is to make information available to residents of all ages, business and community groups.  This information provides techniques to reduce energy consumption and provides examples of numerous ways anyone can do more to green their life.

Household Hazardous Waste Collections

Every home has hazardous waste. Whenever a cleaner, compact flourescent lightbulb, latex paint, maintenance item or medication is unwanted, it is hazardous waste. Will County offers one-day collections and helps fund a permanent collection site in Naperville. Some items may also be taken to retail outlets for proper disposal and recycling services.

Will County partners with some libraries and promotes some retailers to bring residents options for proper battery disposal. Click here for battery details.

Will County Land Use Department, Resource Recovery and Energy Division partners with the Forest Preserve District of Will County to offer Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs) recycling.  Some retailers also offer this service, Click here for Compact Fluorescent Lights (CFLs) details.
