Rain barrel sale begins
Like your driveway or the street, rainwater from your roof runs off and into the St. Louis Park storm sewer system. Instead of going down the storm drain, this water could be collected in rain barrels and recycled and used for your landscaping needs.
Through the Recycling Association of Minnesota's (RAM) annual rain barrel sale, St. Louis Park residents can purchase rain barrels at a low cost. Residents receive 50 percent off the regular $79 (plus tax) cost.
How to order
Online ordering begins March 4 and can be done by completing the online rain barrel order form. To receive the 50 percent resident discount, enter the code "STLOUISPARK" in the promo code field after you have added your rain barrel to your cart.
Pick up your rain barrels Saturday, May 4, 8 a.m. – noon or Monday, May 6, 5 – 7 p.m. at the City of St. Louis Park Municipal Service Center, 7305 Oxford St. These are the only dates available for pick up.
If you can’t participate in this sale, RAM is holding several other sales throughout the spring.
