Rain Barrel Giveaway Friday, August 9th

Post Date:08/01/2019 4:58 PM

City of Abilene Stormwater Services, in partnership with The Coca-Cola Company and Keep Abilene Beautiful, are providing 100 free rain barrels to a limited number of
Abilene residents on Friday, August 9th, at the Environmental Recycling Center at 2209 Oak Street. The event will start at 8 a.m., and last until 10 a.m., or until all barrels have been given away.

This giveaway is a special event to honor August as Water Quality Month. 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 will be given out August 9th on a first come, first served basis. Rain barrels are limited to one per vehicle, with a total of 100 available. Individuals must show an ID and Abilene utility bill to receive a free rain barrel. For additional information, please call 325-734-3301.
