Hodgson Brook Restoration Project and Great Bay Community College is partnering with the Great American Rain Barrel Company to offer rain barrels to area residents at a discount to help conserve water, reduce pollution and save homeowners money.
Each UV protected polyethylene rain barrel is manufactured in the USA from a recycled shipping drum that stands 39″ tall by 24″ wide and weighs 20 lbs. empty with a wall thickness of 3/16″, resulting in a rigid, heavy duty rain barrel that will last virtually forever. The barrel comes complete with overflow fittings, drain plug, screw on cover, and a threaded spigot with a choice of two ports to use with either a watering can or a garden hose. The rain barrel arrives with simple instructions for fast and easy installation. The Great American Rain Barrel is offered in three colors; Forest Green, Earth Brown or Nantucket Gray at the low cost of $68 versus the retail price of $119.
Deadline for ordering is : 5:00 pm May 25, 2012 and orders can be picked up at Great Bay Community College on Friday, June 1 , 3-5:00 pm or Saturday morning June 2 between 9- 11.
