The Town of DeKalb is located between the St. Lawrence River and the foothills of the Adirondacks and encompasses the hamlet of DeKalb Junction, the Village of Richville, and the hamlets of DeKalb, Kendrew and Bigelow. William Cooper of Cooperstown arranged the purchase of De Kalb in February of 1803. The Town of DeKalb was officially chartered by the NYS legislature on February 22, 1806. The first “village” in the township of DeKalb was known as Williamstown or Coopers Village which, by 1814, was a village offering most necessary frontier services. In 1820, when the Coopers were no longer involved, it became known as DeKalb Village. [Click on History in the list on the right for much more information on the history of DeKalb and Richville.]

Did you know it is the law?
You must recycle.
Local trash haulers have received notice that they will randomly be inspected at transfer stations for complacence regulations for recycling. If recyclable materials are mixed in with trash/garbage, the hauler will be subjected to a fine, up to and including the loss of his hauling permit.
Please do your part and bag your recyclables separate from your trash/garbage. There is no need to sort recyclables, as they can all go together in one bag.
Remember, recycle, it is the law!!!
