Rain Barrel Repairs

Does your rain barrel have a broken or leaking tap/overflow? On sale dates, we will have The Barrelman Inc on site to repair rain barrels as needed. The cost for this ranges $15-$30 and is separate from the rain barrel sale. This is cash only.

 

Rain Barrels

Rain barrels are available for sale year round at the Recycle Depot.

Quick facts about our rain barrels:

  • Locally sourced and made with repurposed foodgrade material, making them more environmentally friendly than store bought barrels made with virgin plastic.
  • Blue or white and have a tap and an overflow valve to drain excess water.
  • Closed top and a screen that covers the hole for the downspout.

 

Airdrie and Rocky View County residents can purchase rain barrels for $55.

The cost for non-residents is $65.

 

By using rain barrels at home, you can help conserve water and save money

An average roof in Airdrie collects approximately 24,000 litres of rain annually-this could fill a rain barrel 96 times!

Capturing storm water at home helps reduce the flow of water back to our rivers, reducing the flow of contaminants while supporting flood mitigation efforts. Using a rain barrel also means that less water needs to be treated, reducing demand on water treatment facilities, which in the end saves Airdrie residents money.
