Winter Care For Rain Barrels

On Saturday we returned to standard time and colder weather is upon us. As we prepare for winter we must remember that our water barrels need to be looked after too. Rain barrels needed to be emptied and protected from winter freezing and down spouts re-routed to protect our basements. Rain barrels are an excellent way to conserve water; but they only work if they don’t have holes in them. 
ecoCaledon’s Rain $aver barrels are retrofitted from food grade barrels diverted from landfill.  Barrels may be purchased April – October for $50 at the following locations: Bolton Recycling Centre, Davis Feed and Farm Supply.
