The Town of Clayton has offered free Electronics Recycling and Shredding events in the past and may plan one again, but in the meantime, Clayton residents have some great options to complete those spring cleaning chores!
Your county is busy helping you save the planet by offering FREE electronics recycling for residents at the Johnston County Landfill and 12 Solid Waste Convenience Centers. No trash decal is needed to recycle at any of their locations - you only need a decal for trash! Depending on where you live in the Clayton area, there are two convenient drop-off locations.
Buffalo Road Convenience Center to the northeast, located at 15031 Buffalo Road and Barber Mill Convenience Center to the southwest, located at 369 Barber Mill Road. Both are open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday 8:00 AM to 7:00 PM, Saturday 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM from May 1 through September 30. You can also use the Johnston County Landfill at 680 County Home Road in Smithfield. It is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 4:45 PM, and on Saturday from 8:00 AM to 3:30 PM.
