Village Offering Rain Barrels For Sale

April 30, 2012

Life in Winfield

 

The Village of Winfield is holding a rain barrel sale in coordination with The Conservation Foundation. The Conservation Foundation will be delivering rain barrels to Winfield residents on Saturday morning June 2 at the old fire station on Winfield Rd just north of Roosevelt Rd.  Pick up time will be 8:30am-11am.  If you have any questions or want to order a rain barrel but can’t pick it up Saturday am, alternate arrangements can be made by contacting Cindy at 630 690 0854.

The rain barrels are 55-gallon containers and are about 48” high. Former olive and pickle barrels have been re-purposed to become rain barrels, including an overflow port, water valve and screened top. They are available in terra cotta, black, gray, and blue.  Don’t forget you can use the overflow port for connecting to another rain barrel.

You must order the rain barrels beforehand from the Conservation Foundation; the website is http://upcycle-products.com/static.asp?path=4603 .  You must place your order by May 30.

The cost is only $75.00 and covers everything. Please check the website to see other rain barrel accessories that are available.

Also the Conservation Foundation is offering a free education seminar at the Winfield Library on June 14th  7 pm, “Making your yard eco-friendly” – utilizing native plants for absorbing and cleansing water as well as improving the habitat for birds and butterflies!  Discussions will include rain barrels, rain gardens, and rain water harvesting!
