Rain Barrel

Spring Showers Bring Limited Time Offer on Rain Barrels

Capture the rainwater from your roof and store it in a rain barrel for later use in your garden. 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.  A 60-gallon rainwater collection system is available to employees and residents for $69.  This offer is valid until midnight May 15th. To provide the lowest cost, the company is arranging for a general delivery of the rain barrels on Wednesday, May 22, from 4:00 -7 p.m., at Cambridge DPW yard, 147 Hampshire St.  For more information, to order online and to check out the design and variety of color options, visit The Great American Rain Barrel Company website: www.greatamericanrainbarrel.com  select “Massachusetts” and “Cambridge” under Shop Community Programs.  You can also order by phone (800) 251-2352 toll free and specify the City of Cambridge promotion.
