Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina

Labor Day Closures & Garbage Schedule


All Town of Clayton facilities will be closed Monday, Sept. 2 for Labor Day. Emergency police, fire and rescue services may be reached by calling 9-1-1.

All Star will NOT run garbage, recycling or yard waste routes on Labor Day. Still put your waste out on your regularly-scheduled day  Monday routes will be picked up on Tuesday and crews will immediately start on Tuesday routes on Monday as well, finishing up what they can. Again, please put your carts to the curb as normal this week, just know it might take an extra day for All Star to collect it. When in doubt, leave it out!

Clayton Parks & Recreation's Clayton Community Center will be open on Saturday from 8 a.m to noon, open on Sunday from 1-5 p.m. and will be closed on Monday. 

Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library will be open as normal on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and closed on Sunday and Monday. 

The Clayton Center will be closed on Saturday, but will be open on Sunday for church services as usual. The Clayton Center and Town Hall will be closed Monday, including our utilities and billing department.

All of our Town parks will be open for the entire holiday weekend.

The holiday will also push back September's Clayton Town Council meeting – usually held on the first Monday of the month – to Tuesday, Sept. 3 at 6:00 p.m. at Town Hall/The Clayton Center, 111 East Second Street in Downtown Clayton.

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!
