Collect Rain, Grow Veggies, & Save the Planet!

Free Rain Barrels Available!

Tired of all the rain? Let’s put it to good use! Cleveland’s Summer Rain Barrel Program provides a limited number of rain barrels to Cleveland residents, especially South Collinwood, FREE of charge. 

Rain barrels collect rain water that can be used to water your flowers, veggies, and general landscaping. And, the price of rain won’t increase by 82% over the next 5 years….

Who is eligible?

All homeowners in the City of Cleveland!  However, there are a limited number of rain barrels that are distributed on a first come, first served basis. In 2012, 505 rain barrels were distributed.

What is required to participate in the program?

  • Be a homeowner in the City of Cleveland.
  • Complete required paperwork.
  • Have a 2” X 3” rectangular downspout on your home or garage that is not visible from the street.
  • Install the downspout diverter by the time the rain barrel is delivered. (You will be provided the downspout diverter)
