Free Rain Barrels Available to Residents in Summer 2011

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

An example of a rain barrel

Want to make a positive impact on your region and the local environment?  One of the ways you can do it is by installing a rain barrel at your home.

BBC, in partnership with the City of Cleveland Department of Sustainability, will have twenty rain barrels available to residents of the Central and Kinsman neighborhoods that we will be distributing this summer.

Rain barrels work by diverting rain water from rooftops and gutters to a barrel that collects it to be recycled.  Rain water is best for watering gardens, plants, and lawns because it is rich in nitrogen and other nutrients, which water from the tap does not have.  Plus, reusing it saves money on your water bills.  What’s also great about rain barrels is that they keep water from overtaxing storm sewers, thus helping to prevent flooding.

For additional information or to be placed on the waiting list to receive a free rain barrel, please contact Jeffrey Sugalski at BBC at (216) 341-1455.  Please note that barrels and accompanying materials will be distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, so reserve your spot today.
