Region of Waterloo Rain Barrel Distribution. Get one. Save water
The Region of Waterloo Rain Barrel Distribution program is a one-day only, yearly distribution on a first-come, first-served basis and available only to residents of Waterloo Region. Unfortunately, the Region does not have barrels available for purchase at other times of the year.
History of Rain Barrel Distribution Day:
The Region of Waterloo has distributed 40,000 rain barrels over the last ten years in a program to assist residents who want to save water and be more environmentally conscious. In past years they’ve said “this is the last year”, but that never seems to be true.
I got mine a couple of years ago. There were two transport trailers full at the Conestoga Mall parking lot. I arrived at 7:15 am and the line was already hundreds of people long. The previous year I arrived at about 10am and they were sold out.
The rain barrels are good. Features:
Aesthetically pleasing planter style, earth tone
200 litre capacity
