Rain barrels capture runoff from rooftops during storms to use later to water your lawn or garden. Combined sewers in Syracuse can overflow during wet weather, and the use of rain barrels can help save water and protect Onondaga Lake and its tributaries. Onondaga County residents are eligible to receive a free rain barrel after attending a brief instructional workshop.

Register to attend one of two VIRTUAL Rain Barrel Education Sessions and become eligible to pick up your very own FREE rain barrel!

Questions? Contact Camille Marcotte at (315) 424-9485 ext.232 or ctm78@cornell.edu.

Pick-up dates and times:

  • Saturday, July 23 from 8am – 11am
  • Tuesday, July 26 from 5:30pm – 7:30pm

More information about rain barrel pick-ups will be shared after the Education Sessions.

Rain barrels provided by the Save the Rain program (Onondaga County Department of Water Environment Protection).
