The Grundy County Green Guide was developed by the Environmental and Resource Conservation Office to provide Grundy County residents with solutions to recycling and solid waste obstacles.  The solutions provided in the guide focus on ways to re-use/recycle and dispose of items that should not be placed land fills due to their hazardous nature and IEPA laws.  From household battery recycling to books, antifreeze  and plastic grocery bags, this guide will provide you options where items can be disposed of properly.  If you have any questions or comments, please contact either Heidi Miller or Cheryl Wardell at the Grundy County Land Use Department at 815-941-3229; or 815-941-3228;


Village of Diamond residents can take advantage of the free yearly e-waste recycling event.  Usually held in September, residents will be notified of the date and time of the 1 day event.
