Rain barrels are a wonderful way for the homeowner to extend the use of the rainwater that pours down from the roof of their house.  Any Schaumburg Township residents interested in purchasing a reasonably priced rain barrel(s) now have a few options.

Metropolitan Water Reclamation District
Rain Barrel Purchase Program
Visit to reserve up to two barrels per household at a cost of $50 per barrel.  Distribution takes place the first Tuesday, first Thursday and first Saturday of each month in Skokie, Cicero and Chicago. 

Village of Hoffman Estates
The Village plans to arrange a pre-order for rain barrels with the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District.  Residents would reserve a rain barrel and then pick up the purchased barrels at a Village facility later this spring.  Call the village at 847-781-2669 or email them at to reserve your barrels now. 

Village of Schaumburg Park District
Spring Valley Nature Sanctuary continues to take orders through April 1, 2010   with barrels ready for pick-up in early May. Those ordering will be contacted when barrels are ready. Barrels come with instructions for installation and care as well as directions on how to paint (if desired).
