The City of Clayton knows that many of our residents are interested in protecting their environment and limiting the size of their carbon footprint. As an organization we look for ways to make it easier for our residents to recycle. From getting large recycling totes for residents to using the yard waste collected at Sweep Clayton Clean events each summer, we want to do our part.
