The J. B. Green Team recently provided the Village of Barnesville with a "Community Awards Grant" of $1,000 to provide the biodegradable compostable paper leaf bags to residents of Barnesville to assist with the annual fall leaf pick up.

This grant will provide for 2,000 of these bags. Residents may pick up a bundle of five of these bags for free at the Barnesville Water Department Office. This will be provided while they last.

The Barnesville Public Works will be picking up leafs that are left curbside by residents of the Village of Barnesville as long as they are contained in these style of bags and no plastic trash bags will be accepted. Bags must contain leaves only and will be picked up as time allows. No specific schedule will be followed. Also there is no longer a drop off point at the Depot and will be dumpling violation if found dropping off there.
