Rain barrels available to order for home delivery

Water-saving rain barrels are available to order online now for home delivery from May 17-21.

All Lakewood residents are eligible to purchase a rain barrel at the cost of $65 per barrel with a limit of 2 per household.

Order your barrel online now. Delivery will be provided free of charge to your front door. You do not need to be present for delivery.

Rain barrels are made from "food grade" recycled-plastic barrels with a corrosion-resistant solid brass ¾" spigot with garden hose attachment and a 4" steel mesh netting to prevent mosquitoes and other bugs from access. They’re available in several colors and styles, depending on availability, from 50 to 62 gallons each.

After your purchase, you can apply for a Metropolitan Water District program that rebates $35 each for up to two barrels per household (one submission is allowed).

For additional information on the rain barrel rebate, please call (919) 602-6316 or email
