DEP Rain Barrel Giveaway in Brooklyn

Date & Time

START: 9:00 AM April 16, 2011
END: 2:00 PM April 16, 2011


NYC’s Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) will be holding its 3rd Rain Barrel Giveaway. Initiated in 2008, DEP began giving away rain barrels to one and two-family homes as a part of their stormwater management efforts. DEP originally gave away 250 barrels to residents in Queens in 2008, then in 2009 they upped the amount to 750; this year the DEP will be giving out 1,000 free rain barrels! It’s a “first come, first serve” basis so you’ll have to hurry so you too can help reduce water consumption in New York City.
