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 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.
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.
