Next Saturday – Region making rain barrels available to Burlingtonians for $40. at Mapleview Mall

By Staff

BURLINGTON, ON  June 1, 2015  They are going to sell them by the truck load and at $40 they are a steal.  Trucks will be near the Hudson’s Bay entrance

in the lower parking lot on Saturday June 9 and will be on location from 8 a.m. to 12 noon.

At $40 they are a bargain. Long life - see them as a feeder for the envirment.


Each rain barrel is priced at $40 – cash only – and will hold  208 litre – 55 gallons of water.  They are made of a durable plastic containing recycled content.  The rain barrels fit into the back seat of an average sized vehicle and require minimal assembly. Residents are responsible for adapting their downspout to flow into the rain barrel.  All the instructions you need come with the barrel.

Putting in and using a rain barrel is an important part of outdoor water conservation; it allows you to reuse rain water that would otherwise go to waste,” said Gary Carr, Halton’s Regional Chair. He added that  “Since Halton began the truckload sales in 2009, almost 13,000 rain barrels have been sold, which at full use has the potential to reduce water consumption by 2.6 million litres.”
