Westmont, Illinois -- Date Issued: March 25, 2021
The Village of Westmont works with the Conservation Foundation to assist residents in becoming more eco-friendly. One of the initiatives of the Conservation Foundation is to promote and encourage residents to purchase rain barrels, which save money and help the environment.
A rain barrel is a container that captures and stores rainwater draining from your roof. Barrels usually range from 50 to 80 gallons and have a spigot for filling watering cans and a connection for a soaker hose. Following are some of the benefits of using a rain barrel as part of your eco-friendly gardening.
Due to current budget constraints, no rain barrel purchase subsidies are available at this time. However, rain barrels and accessories are available for purchase through the Conservation Foundation website.
