The Village of Akron & Town of Newstead provide one (1) free recycling tote to each homeowner.  All recycling tote transactions and concerns will be handled by the Newstead Town Clerk at 5 Clarence Center Road, even if you are a resident of the Village of Akron.

If you have built a new home, in the village or the town, there will be no charge for the recycling tote to that homeowner.  The homeowner would have to go to the Newstead Town Clerk's Office and request their free recycling tote.

The cost of an additional recycling tote or to replace a damaged recycling tote will be $70.00 for a 95 gallon recycling tote and $55.00 for a 65 gallon recycling tote.
