Set up your rain barrel this summer
While rain has been MIA from the forecast lately, you can still get your rain barrel set up while it’s dry and have it ready for when the rain returns. 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" high by 24" wide. Order your barrel at City Hall, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. The next pickup dates are July 29, Aug. 12, and Aug. 26.
