Effective June 2015, the Village of Westchester has partnered with the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District (MWRD) of Greater Chicago to offer its residents FREE RAIN BARRELS! As of December 31, 2016, the program will no longer offer free rain barrels. For more information and to place your order, please visit the MWRD website.
The rain barrels hold 55 gallons of rain water and come in four (4) colors: Black, Gray, Terra Cotta, and Blue (they are all the same size, regardless of how the pictures look). Up to four (4) barrels can be ordered per household and the MWRD’s vendor will arrange for their delivery which will accompany instructions for installation. *May take up to twelve (12) weeks for the delivery.
This is a terrific program and the Village of Westchester strongly encourages your participation.
