Free Rainwater Harvesting Containers - ON HOLD

  • 55-gallon barrels- We're repurposing barrels that were used in the water treatment process, or in the production of Purina products or Joy Cone products. We drill a hole in the tops of the barrels and the lower side of the barrels for a spigot. We install spigots/bibs in each barrel so you can hook up a hose and start watering your garden with collected rainwater. 
  • 270-gallon totes- We're retrofitting plastic cubes that once contained a polymer used in the water treatment process. We install a spigot in the bottom of these before handing them off to the public.

To receive a free rainwater container, participants are required to attend a rainwater harvesting workshop. Fill out this form to get on the waiting list - but know that the wait may be long!
