The County's Environmental Ordinance calls for a number of solid waste and recycling initiatives in that will benefit the overall environmental health and safety of Cook County residents. The ordinance gives the county authority to prosecute illegal dumping activities; stipulates minimum operating requirements, fees, and reporting for solid waste and recycling facilities; and requires reporting for waste and recycling haulers which will help the county in recycling, reuse, and waste diversion planning.

As of December 1, 2017, the Cook County Department of Environmental Control is now the Department of Environment and Sustainability.
