Conserve water, help your garden by ordering discounted rain barrel by May 8
You can buy the discounted rain barrels online at www.upcycle-products.com for $63.50 each. Click on “order forms” on the right side of the page and choose “Oklahoma Municipal Program.”
The deadline to order is May 8.
“Rain barrels collect water that drains from your home’s gutter system,” said City Environmental Protection Manager Raymond Melton. “Watering with rain water is better for your plants, and it’s free.”
You can use the 55-gallon barrels to collect water from rainfall, helping to promote sustainability in our community by limiting the amount of drinking water used on lawns and gardens. The barrels come with screens to keep out critters and mosquitoes.
