Rain Barrel Program
2022 Rain Barrel Program
Residents of Easthampton and any nearby communities are eligible to purchase reduced price rain barrels through a partnership between the City of Easthampton and the Great American Rain Barrel Company as part of a community wide conservation and sustainability program. Help conserve natural water resources, prevent storm water runoff, and save on your water bills!
The 60-gallon rain barrels are made entirely from repurposed food grade shipping drums and are available at a discounted price of $79 for painted (green, dark brown, and gray), $74 for unpainted (black or gray), and $70 for unpainted terra cotta (red). Unpainted barrels will have markings and a dull, scratched finish; painted barrels hide most of the markings and have a glossy, smoother finish. The rain barrels normally retail for $119 each.
