How to Get Your Free Rain Barrel in NYC

NYC gives away barrels through a program run by DEP.  You can learn more about it here:
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:

And your Community Board here:

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.

  1. Hello,

    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.
