Set Up your Rain Barrel This Summer
Get a rain barrel set up while it’s dry and have it ready for when the next bout of rain comes! Did you know? Rain barrel water is healthier for your plants as it is unchlorinated and oxygen-rich. Plus, it’s a sustainable option when watering restrictions are in effect (May 1 to Oct. 15).
New Westminster residents can purchase a rain barrel from the City for $70 + GST. These barrels hold 208L of water, and are 34 inches high by 24 inches wide. Order your rain barrel in-person at City Hall, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The next pickup dates are Aug. 19 and 26.
