I'm a Renter – How can I use a rain barrel?

Rain barrels would not operate efficiently on balconies as they rely on the collection capacity of a large roof, pooling all the water into a barrel. Although, we’ve heard of really enthusiastic people setting up tarp funnels to make that happen!

Renters should seek their landlords approval to install a rain barrel, however the rain barrel can be removed at anytime and the downspout can be re-attached  with two screws.
