The Town of Raynham, MA has partnered with the Great American Rain Barrel Company in Hyde Park, MA to offer rain barrels to residents at a discount to help conserve water and save 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. Raynham is offering the Great American Rain Barrel in three colors; Forest Green, Earth Brown or Nantucket Gray at the low cost of $65 versus the retail price of $119.

Rain barrels reduce runoff. In watershed areas,~runoff from homes and developments can~harm existing water sources because overtaxed storm sewers discharge polluted runoff. Over time this takes a toll on the fragile aquatic ecosystem that the area is dependant on. Water shortage is also a growing global concern.~ In New England residential water usage can increase as much as 60% during the spring, summer and fall seasons from outdoor watering needs such as watering gardens, lawns, filling pools and, washing cars. Barrels can offset that usage; saving homeowner’s money and helping the community manage water
The Great American Rain Barrel Company is a wholly owned subsidiary of a Mediterranean specialty food importing business. The barrels are recycled from 6o gallon shipping drums and distributed to homeowners nationwide.
