Will County String Light Recycling Now Available

Will County is getting the word out and reminding residents of the string light recycling program. There will be three drop-off locations in Joliet until January 31st.

“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.” 

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.  

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.
