Streets Department


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. Suburban Disposal collects roll carts, residential and business.  Businesses needing large dumpster pick up may contact a local provider for that service.


Garbage Collection

Household Garbage (updated November 2017) will be collected Monday, Tuesday, & Thursday (except holidays). Yard Trash is removed on Tuesday for those residents who normally receive garbage collection on Tuesday and Thursday.  For those who receive garbage collection on Monday (including those who used to receive it on Friday, but who now receive it on Monday) yard trash will be collected on Wednesday.  Metal trash is collected the last Wednesday of the month upon request to City Hall.  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.
