Village of Romeoville Offers Rain Barrels
The Village of Romeoville Green Team's Rain Barrel program helps to promote water conservation. Rain barrels are a simple, efficient, low-cost method for homeowners to collect and recycle water. Rain barrels are large containers that capture rainwater at the end of your downspout, and have a spigot on the front making captured rainwater available.
The 55-gallon black recycled food-grade plastic barrel has a valve and a screw-off lid fitted with a screen to accept your downspout. Overflows and connections to additional barrels have also been installed (A sample barrel is available for viewing in the Village Hall board room). Barrels can be painted and decorated (instructions will be provided). Barrels must be stored in back or side yard.
The barrels sell for $85 and can be purchased by contacting Village Hall at 815-886-7200. Barrels will be delivered to your home in as little as two weeks.
