The Brookline Department of Public Works (DPW) has partnered with the Great American Rain Barrel Company in Hyde Park, Massachusetts to offer rain barrels to residents at a discount to help conserve water and save money.
Each UV-protected polyethylene rain barrel is manufactured in the USA from a recycled shipping drum that stands 39 inches tall by 24 inches wide and weighs 20 pounds empty with a wall thickness of 3/16 inches, resulting in a rigid, heavy duty rain barrel that will last virtually forever. The barrel comes complete with overflow fittings, drain plug, screw on cover, and a threaded spigot with a choice of 2 ports to use with either a watering can or a garden hose. The rain barrel arrives with simple instructions for fast and easy installation.
Colors & Cost
Brookline is offering the Great American Rain Barrel in 3 colors, forest green, earth brown, or Nantucket gray, at the low cost of $79 versus the retail price of $119.
