Rain barrels capture storm water from roof runoff and store it for future use, such as watering a lawn or garden. Over the next two years, rain barrels will be distributed in an organized fashion by local Elected Officials and the Office of Consumer Affairs.
Contact your local Elected Officials, including Council Members, Assembly Members, Senators and Members of Congress, to find out if they are having a Rain Barrel Giveaway. Staff members can assist you with reserving a rain barrel. If they are not taking reservations, they can direct you to a location where rain barrels will be given out on a first-come, first-serve basis.
