The City of Barnwell has a three-man crew of full-time employees that take care of the City public areas such as sidewalk lanes and other grassy areas along roadways. They help to keep out roadways clean from dead animals and other debris.
- The City of Barnwell contracts with an outside agency for garbage and general trash pickup. S&S Disposal, Inc. collects roll carts, residential and business. Businesses needing large dumpster pick up may contact a local provider for that service.
Garbage Collection: Please contact City Hall at 803-259-3266 if you have a question about the day of your normal collection. All residents and businesses should have carts out the night before the collection day*. All yard debris is collected on Wednesdays. Yard debris (leaves/straw) must be in bags on the ground by the road or limbs of no more than 5 inches in diameter and 5 feet long. Please do not use carts for yard debris. Place yard debris on the ground where you would place your cart for trash pick up. Household Garbage will be picked up only, no contractor debris. Furniture will NOT be collected. White goods (washers, dryers, etc) will be picked up once a month on the last Wednesday of the month. If you have white goods to be picked up, we ask that you call City Hall and give us your address information. Holiday schedules will be posted when appropriate.
*Beginning May 2020, the disposal company has a new tracking program and WILL NOT go back to pick up garbage if it has not been placed by the road to be picked up. PLEASE put the roll cart out the NIGHT BEFORE YOUR PICK UP DAY.
