Waste Generation and Diversion Reporting
Will County Reporting Requirements
Since 1999 Will County has had an ordinance that requires all businesses involved in the disposal, recycling and composting of materials to report volumes of material to the County every six months. This ordinance was enacted for the purpose of tracking the implementation progress of the Will County Solid Waste Management Plan. Semi-annual reports are due July 31 for the period of January 1 to June 30 and January 31 for the period July 1 to December 31 and must include the following information:
1. The total volume and/or tonnage of municipal waste collected in the County by sector (i.e., residential, commercial, institutional and industrial); and
2. The total volume and/or tonnage of each category of recyclable materials collected and recycled by sector (residential, commercial, institutional and industrial).
