The Will County GIS Division is working with the Resource Recovery and Energy Division to build this App for all residents, businesses, units of government, schools, and visitors to find examples of ways to improve homes, office buildings, and all types of infrastructure to improve its use of energy, conserve water resources, reuse and recycle materials that otherwise might become waste.
