Rain Barrel Pickup Event

The City, in partnership with the Conservation Foundation and Upcycle Products, continues to promote using rain barrels as a free irrigation option. Rain barrels are used to capture rainwater from your roof for reuse in watering garden spaces. Rainwater is better for plants and soil because it is free from the salts, ions and fluoride found in tap water. Just as importantly, rain barrels capture water that otherwise would run off and could harm streams and rivers.

Back again this year, rain barrel purchases received by mail-in form by April 12 or online before April 15 may be picked up during the tree sale drive-thru on Saturday, April 20 at the Public Works Service Center from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. A portion of rain barrel sales will be donated to the Conservation Foundation. Rain barrel orders must be placed through the Upcycle Products website.*Please bring receipt for order when picking up.

 Please note, the home delivery option is only for rain barrels purchased through Upcycle. There is not a home delivery option for tree sale purchases.
