Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant Will County Executive

I am honored to serve as your Will County Executive. As a lifelong resident of this great county, I have witnessed many changes as we have evolved from an ag-community to a major hub in the global distribution market.  I am dedicated to building upon this status but I am equally dedicated to maintaining the quality of life for the nearly 700,000 residents and thousands of businesses and organizations that call Will County home.

Please explore our website which is filled with important information about services and departments within the County Executive office as well as connections to other county officials’ websites.

Will County is diverse, vibrant and filled with hard-working people. We have room to grow and we look forward to a great future.

Will County, Lewis University Hosting Pumpkin Toss Event

Will County and Lewis University will hold their annual pumpkin catapult event from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, Nov. 4, at 1 University Parkway in Romeoville.

The event is a partnership between the Resource Recovery and Energy Division of the Will County Land Use Department and the Lewis University Physics Club, which designed the catapults. Attendees can bring pumpkins and gourds to be catapulted. Pumpkins must be free of decorations, paint and candles. The smashed pieces will be composted.

In addition to pumpkin/gourd disposal, the event will also provide electronics recycling and document shredding services. Each vehicle is limited to a maximum of two televisions and three bank boxes of documents.

Will County’s environmental educator will teach participants about composting. The family-friendly event is held annually to provide a fun way to properly dispose of unwanted materials and learn about the importance of composting.

The event will be held at the “W” parking lot at Lewis University.
