NYC gives away barrels through a program run by DEP. You can learn more about it here: http://www.nyc.gov/html/dep/html/stormwater/rainbarrel.shtml
Should you need further information: Contact your local elected official or Community Board to see if they have or are scheduling a rain barrel event this spring and summer.
Find your officials here: http://www.mygovnyc.org/
And your Community Board here: http://www.nyc.gov/html/cau/html/cb/cb.shtml
If you find there isn’t a giveaway in your neighbourhood, a fundraising sale could be held. We’d be happy to hear from you or someone you know who might be interested in holding one there.
You can REFER A PARTNER or FUNDRAISE WITH US in USA or Canada by checking out our website.

I want to have a free rain barrel to save rain water to water my plants.
I would like to know when a rain barrel giveaway will take place in upper Manhattan; I live in Central Harlem where I think this program is needed and would receive a lot of participation.
