Recyclepalooza spring cleaning
For the first time since 2015, Will County will host Recyclepalooza in April, providing an opportunity for spring cleaners to get rid of items in an environmentally responsible way.
The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, April 13.
With the help of Sharefest volunteers and vendors, Will County will be accepting electronics, household hazardous waste, scrap metal, wood, and foam plastic such as egg cartons, packaging blocks and clean Styrofoam cups.
Donations of clothing, books, small home furnishings, knick knacks, donations for the Troops, and worn American flags for ceremonial destruction will also be accepted at the event.
For a complete list of what will be accepted, go to willcountygreen.com.
