New Recycling Pick-up in Barnwell

Along with the changes to garbage pick-up, we are also changing the pick-up day for recycling as well. You will see the recycle trucks out in the village every Friday but they will be picking up half the village each week. 

Starting on September 3rd, 2021 pick up will be done on the south side of the village with the old highway being the dividing line. The north side of the village will be picked up on September 10th, 2021 and this will continue alternating each week. 

You will find the map for recycling below. You will also receive a calendar indicating which half of the village will have recycle pick-up on which week.

New Garbage Cart System in Barnwell

We are changing things for weekly garbage pick-up! By the end of August or first few days of September, all Barnwell residents will be receiving a garbage cart that belongs with the property. This is what you will use to roll out your garbage to the curb for pick-up.

Pick-up will be every Friday, roll your cart out in the morning and roll it back in the afternoon. If a holiday lands on Friday, garbage pick up will be the next business day.

These bins are for household garbage only!

Do not put any of the following items in your cart: construction/demolition materials, household hazardous wastes, animal carcasses or any other harmful or hazardous items.

If you have any questions regarding garbage pick-up, please call the office at 403-223-4018.

Barnwell Days 2021 Update

We are so excited to be hosting Barnwell Days again this year and have an event and opportunity to Reunite our Community. A few things to note, there was an oversight on the website initially that indicated that the race and the food trucks were free, and they are not. The race is $10 for 15 and older and $5 for 14 and younger. The Food trucks will have their own pricing.

Almost all the events will be at Willow Park this year except for the Craft Fair and the Parade.

For more information on the schedule or events, please visit our website on the events page.

Things you will need to remember:

Bring your camp chairs so you have somewhere to sit, we will have some tables and chairs available but likely not enough for everyone and having your own chair allows you to find a spot in the shade, it’s going to be hot!

Make sure you have your water bottle with you, there will be drinks for purchase on Saturday with the food trucks but no water bottles supplied.  

Also, make sure you bring cash/debit for the food trucks.

The Village will have a table at the craft fair on Saturday to show you what we have been working on as an expansion of Ken Anderson Park, stop by our table to check it out!

Barnwell Day t-shirts will be available for purchase at our table as well for $20 – cash only.
