Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina

Town of Clayton Facilities Closed for Labor Day on Sept. 5


All Town of Clayton facilities will be closed Monday, Sept. 5 for Labor Day. Emergency police, fire and rescue services may be reached by calling 9-1-1.

The closures include The Clayton Center, Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library, the Clayton Community Center and Town Hall — including our utilities and billing department. The library and community center will be open as usual on Saturday, Sept. 3, and all of our Town parks will be open for the entire holiday weekend.

Waste Management will NOT run garbage, recycling or yard waste routes on Labor Day, which will push back collection by one day for the entire week. That means Monday's routes will be collected Tuesday, Tuesday's routes will run Wednesday, and so on. Friday's routes will be serviced Saturday.

Note that you may still see Waste Management trucks in your neighborhood on your regularly-scheduled collection day. This is normal, and the trucks will be back the next day to collect your waste. No need to fret – just leave your bin at the curb until they come back. When in doubt, leave it out!

So what’s up with that old black-and-white photo we chose to highlight the holiday closures? That’s a photo of workers shot right here in Clayton inside the Liberty Tobacco Warehouse around the turn of the 20th Century. It was around that time, in 1894, that the United States declared Labor Day as a federal holiday in honor of the hard-working Americans who make our country strong. It sure looks like the men in that hot tobacco warehouse could have used a day off!

Hope you enjoyed the history lesson and have a happy holiday weekend!
