Rain Barrel Distribution 2012

rain barrel distributionRain Barrel Distribution 2012 will be happening again in Waterloo Region. Every year for the past ten years Waterloo Region has been sponsoring a one day only subsidized rain barrel distribution event. For the past few years they have been saying that “this will be the final year”. I believe them. I always do.

The FINAL rain barrel distribution event will be held on Saturday, April 28, 2012, beginning at 7:30 a.m. It’s best to get there about 7:00 or earlier if you can. The line is quite long and one year they ran out before I got my rain barrel. There are a couple of transport trailers full of rain barrels at all three locations. The line moves pretty fast. They have a lot of hands on deck. The locations are Cambridge Centre (Bay parking lot) in Cambridge, Fairview Park Mall (Bay parking lot) in Kitchener and Conestoga Mall (Zellers parking lot) in Waterloo.

The barrels are sold for $40 each (tax included, cash only). You must be a resident of Waterloo Region and present proof of address on a driver’s license, tax bill, etc. There is a limit of one barrel per person, per household.

The 2012 distribution is the last time the Region will be holding a single-day, subsidized rain barrel sale. So don’t miss this opportunity!

Rainwater collection using barrels and harvesting tanks is a great way to save water.Check with your city public works department to see if you qualify for a storm sewer surcharge credit if you are currently using rain barrels. Save water. Save money.
