Free Rain Barrels Available to Abilene Residents

Post Date:04/05/2019 2:15 PM

City of Abilene Stormwater Services in partnership with The Coca-Cola Company and Keep Abilene Beautiful are providing free rain barrels to one hundred Abilene residents starting at 8 a.m. on April 12th, 2019, at the Environmental Recycling Center at 2209 Oak Street. The event will last until all of the rain barrels have been given away.

Rain barrels collect and store rainwater from rooftops that would otherwise be diverted to local storm drains or streams. Rain barrels can be connected to gutter down spouts and help store water for when you need it most. With an installed rain barrel, home owners can save thousands of gallons of water each year.

Rain barrels are delivered on a first come, first served basis, and will be limited to 100. Rain barrels are limited to one per car, and individuals must show an ID and Abilene water bill to receive one. For additional information, please call 325-734-3301.
