Village offices will be closed Monday, May 29, 2023 in observance of Memorial Day.

The offices will reopen Tuesday, May 30, 2023.


Public Notice to all New Knoxville residents and businesses that are currently using the
Wednesday morning curbside recycling bins for co-mingled recyclables.

Due to low cost recyclable market conditions and ever increasing expenses (i.e., additional
personnel, trucks, fuel, processing center to separate the co-mingled product, etc.) incurred with
curbside recycling it has become unprofitable to continue this service. You may have already
noticed on several occasions that recyclables and refuse bags have been put in the same
refuse truck because of low recycle profit margins.

Beginning with the Wednesday, May 17, 2023 refuse pickup, the Village’s refuse contractor will
no longer be picking up any recyclables. You may keep your recycle bin.

Instead, all those that wish to continue recycling will have to take their recyclables to the
"Auglaize County Solid Waste District" recycling bins located at the N.K. Village Department of
Utilities building at the north end of Industrial Park Drive. These bins are available 24/7 and
are monitored by security cameras. There are separate bins for folded down cardboard, tin
and aluminum cans, glass bottles, mixed paper, plastic bottles (#1 & 2 only) and plastic bags.

While this may come as somewhat of an inconvenience, note that this is not unique to
New Knoxville. Cridersville, Minster, New Bremen, Waynesfield and other villages have been
handling recycling this way for quite some time.




The Splash Pad is scheduled to open Memorial Day weekend.

Community Garage Sales will be September 8 & 9.



Town Hall office hours are Monday – Thursday 8 am – 4 pm.

For utility payments, the deposit box in the alley is still available.

We also offer an autopay option for your utility bill.

If you would like to get set up on autopay, please come in and fill out a form

or click on the "Forms and Documents" tab and download the Direct Payment Authorization form.
