Welcome to willcountygreen.com

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, through the Will County Land Use Department.  The website's mission is to offer information  to residents of all ages, businesses, schools 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. 

Use the Green Guide tab to find a map and database filled with recycling options and pages of information on our most frequently asked questions. Take a moment to enjoy one of the educational games, designed for all ages or visit a recycling facility virtually under the Education tab. To find out the many ways the County is saving energy, click the Initatives tab. There is something for everyone from opportunities for community involvement to classroom presentations. Enjoy your visit, come back again and tell your friends!
