Akron/Newstead Composting Program

It’s April 1, and that means that Akron/Newstead residents (sorry, not landscaping businesses etc), can drop off their compostables at The Municipal Composting Facility at 12707 Clarence Center Rd, Akron, NY 14001.

The facility is open Monday-Friday 7AM-3PM and Saturday 9-Noon through November.

Residents must obtain a Composting Permit from Newstead Town Hall, Akron Village Hall or Joint Highway Facility.  Permits need to be shown when you are dropping stuff off, and you can use it as many times as you wish.

Stuff you can drop off:

yard waste, grass clippings, tree branches

Stuff you can pick up:

top soil, wood chips  NOTE:  You need to load it yourself.
