The Village of Flossmoor is pleased to partner with the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District to offer FREE rain barrels to residents. The Village will take orders for rain barrels through October 28.
A rain barrel is a water tank used to collect and store rainwater at the end of your downspout, which you can then use to water plants, wash your car and reduce your water bill. They are a simple, efficient, low-cost method for homeowners to collect and recycle water.
The MWRD is providing rain barrels for free, but the resident is responsible for the installation and maintenance of the rain barrel. The Village will submit the order on behalf of residents and the MWRD’s vendor will deliver the rain barrel directly to the resident’s home. The current delivery time is 12 weeks after the order is complete.
To sign up for a rain barrel, download the attached form and drop it off at Village Hall, 2800 Flossmoor Road. The Village can only take orders for residents of Flossmoor and the form must be signed by the OWNER of the home.
