Understanding Utilities

Basic Utilities
As part of its operations, the Town of Clayton provides basic utility services to the community and to a limited number of customers outside municipal limits. 

The Town has been granted franchises to be the exclusive provider of electric services to our residents, and to provide sanitary sewer collection and conveyance within Town boundaries in conjunction with Kent County.
Additional Services
The Town franchises the provision of natural gas with Chesapeake Utilities and cable services with Comcast, but we are not responsible for these services. 
Artesian Water Company provides water to our residents.

Telephone services are provided through Verizon under an agreement with the Town. 

The Town provides trash service to residential customers and a limited number of commercial businesses in the downtown area through GFL Environmental.
