Discounted Rain Barrel Offer Extended

Order a Discounted Rain Barrel Today


Capture the rainwater from your roof and store it in a rain barrel for later use in your garden. Purchase a 60-gallon rainwater collection system for $69.00, a 40% discount off regular price. This offer is valid until Monday, May 20. To provide the lowest cost, the company is arranging for a general delivery of the rain barrels on Thursday, May 23, from 4-7 p.m., at Cambridge DPW yard, 147 Hampshire Street.

If rainwater is not captured and allowed to soak back into the ground, rivers and streams do not have the chance to sustain or "recharge" themselves. By capturing rainwater, you are reducing stormwater runoff, conserving water and recharging the groundwater. For more information, to order online and to check out the new design and variety of color options log onto The Great American Rain Barrel Company website.  You can also order by phone at 800- 251-2352. Be sure to mention the City of Cambridge promotion.
