Sustainable Wheat Ridge is providing FREE rain barrel diverter & parts kits to create your own rainwater collection system at your home. Rain barrels help to collect and conserve rain water, reduce your water bill and water your plants for free. The kit includes all accessory parts needed to easily make your own rain barrel. The rain barrel drum and tools are not included.
To sign up for your kit, click here. Once you submit your request for a kit, you will be contacted with information for where and when to pick it up. We have limited quantities so these kits will be available on a first come, first served basis until they run out.
This offer is for Wheat Ridge residents only. You will be asked to verify your Wheat Ridge address when you pick up your kit (driver's license, mail, etc.) Limit one rain barrel per household.
