Garbage Collection

NEW - an updated Household Garbage collection schedule is coming for some of the residents in Barnwell. Friday garbage collection will cease by October, so those residents now receiving garbage collection on Fridays will have their garbage collected on a different day.   Roll carts will be tagged during the weeks prior beginning mid September to inform residents of this change.  All yard debris will be removed on Wednesdays only. 

Household Garbage is collected Monday, Tuesday, Thursday & Friday (except holidays). Yard Trash is removed on Wednesday for residents who normally have their household garbage collect on Monday or Friday, and on Tuesday for those whose trash is collected on Tuesday or Thursday. Metal trash is collected the last Friday of the month upon request to City Hall.  (An update to this information will be coming soon).  Tree limbs cut to 5 ft or less in length/5 inches or less in diameter and bagged yard debris < 35 lbs. that is moved to the road by the resident will be removed. Furniture will be removed along with yard trash, with some exceptions (batteries, tires, paint cans, and other similar hazardous materials). Construction material (i.e. building wood, fences, concrete, etc…) or any material placed by a Contractor will not be removed.


As of October 2016, Roll Carts are $14 per cart per month for residential customers and $15 for commercial customers.

If shared containers, each residence or business will be charged the minimum fee.

There is no Dumpster service through the City of Barnwell.  Businesses needing commercial dumpster service may obtain service from local providers.


The City owns and maintains one cemetery, Barnwell cemetery, just above Fuller Park.


Any street or street light issues should be reported to City Hall, 803-259-3266.
