 Belleville’s Barrels Best

Belleville ON, May 29th, 2015
Truckload rain barrel fundraising events have become an annual spring tradition in communities across Ontario including Belleville. On the surface, an event scheduled for June 3rd seems no different than others except for the fact that the newly manufactured rain barrels are made right here in Belleville, by Greif Bros Canada Inc. Belleville’s barrels have competed for and won contracts in Hamilton, Brantford, Halton, Peel, Guelph, Waterloo, Sudbury and Richmond Hill because they have proven to offer the best quality and value. Like thousands in other communities, Belleville residents can now acquire the same high quality products while supporting a local non-profit organization.

Any local gardener can tell you about the benefits of rainwater when it comes to growing plants and vegetables. The absence of fluoride and chlorine which are often added to drinking water systems is ideal for plant growth. Use of free rainwater reduces demands on municipal water systems and can result in lower water bills. Rain barrels can also minimize damage caused by heavy rain events by redirecting water away from building foundations. is the exclusive distributor of Belleville rain barrels and has partnered with Quinte Christian High School and Nicholson Catholic College. The schools plan to use funds raised through the sale of rain barrels to support several fundraising initiatives. For additional information please visit
