Rain Barrel Program

Three rain barrels shown in the colors offeredThe 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.
