Welcome the Town of Clayton, North Carolina

Town of Clayton Facilities Closed Sept. 3 for Labor Day


All Town of Clayton facilities will be closed Monday, Sept. 3 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, which will push back collection for the entire week. Still put your waste out on your regularly-scheduled day – just know it might take an extra day for All Star to collect it. When in doubt, leave it out!

The Town facility closures include Hocutt-Ellington Memorial Library, The Clayton Center, 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. 1, and 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. 4 at 6:30 p.m. at The Clayton Center, 111 East Second Street in Downtown Clayton. Keep an eye on TownofClaytonnc.org, Facebook and Twitter for a preview of that meeting.

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!
