  • Provide alternative disposal and recycling options through special collection events and recycling program development.
  • Educate the public about proper waste disposal and recycling.
  • Provide input and oversight on environmental issues facing residents and businesses in the county.
  • Enforce the Illinois Environmental Protection Act and associated regulations through an IEPA-delegated inspection program.
