Welcome to the Land Use Department!

As a fairly new addition to the many fine departments of the county, we have adopted this goal as we serve the residents of Grundy County:

To promote a safe, healthy, balanced community that preserves our natural resources and educates our residents to continue this pursuit for future generations of Grundy residents.’

The Land Use Department has three offices to serve Grundy County’s needs. The Environmental & Resource Conservation Office, the Building and Zoning Office and the Planning Office are the fabric that makes up our Land Use Department.

Grundy County Document Shredding August 25, 2017 - 10 am - Noon

Grundy County Document Shredding Event
August 25, 2017, 10:00 AM to Noon
1320 Union Street, Morris, IL 60450

 The Land Use Department’s Environmental Resource and Conservation Office (ERCO) will be hosting a shredding event for residents on Friday, August 25, 2017 from 10:00 AM to noon. The event will take place in the front parking lot of the Grundy County Administration Building located at 1320 Union Street in Morris.

Please limit your shredding materials to two standard paper ream boxes in order for more people to be able to participate.

As this event will save you the time of shredding sensitive documents, the cost of a shredder, and recycle the most recoverable material, it is a complete win for you and environment.

The process that takes place at our Shredding Event the day of the event is the following:

  • Paper is dumped into a shredding device that is part of a box truck
  • Documents are shredded on site
  • Shredded paper is weighed and then recycled
  • Grundy County residents give back to the Earth resources

We appreciate your efforts in recycling and look forward to seeing you at this event.

If you should have any questions please feel free to contact our office at (815) 941-3228.

Thank you Grundy County residents!
