Feeling a little “green” lately? One of the ways residents of the Central and Kinsman neighborhoods can positively impact the local environment is to install a rain barrel at their home!
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 not found in tap water. Plus, reusing it saves money on your water bills. Rain barrels also keep water from overtaxing waste water and sewers, thus helping to prevent discharge of sewage into Lake Erie.
For additional information or to be placed on the list to receive a free rain barrel, contact Jeffrey Sugalski at BBC at (216) 341-1455. Please note that barrels and accompanying materials will be distributed to residents of Central and Kinsman only on a first-come, first-served basis, so reserve your spot today!
