Free Rain Barrels Are Back for the City of Los Angeles

Support Provided By

Last fall, Keep Los Angeles Beautiful partnered with Coca-Cola to provide 1,000 free rain barrels and rain barrel conversion kits to Los Angeles residents. The only prerequisite was attendance of a rain harvesting workshop, which the program sold out instantly.

If you've been waiting for the program to replenish its supplies, good news: the free barrels are back, with new workshop dates on the calendar. Keep Los Angeles Beautiful has secured another round of 55-gallon syrup barrels and rain barrel conversion kits from Coca-Cola to repurpose and distribute for residential use.

To get in line for one, you must preregister for a distribution event online. The first is scheduled for March 7 at Friendship Auditorium in Griffith Park. Additional events will be announced for March 14, March 28, and April.

The events are free to all preregistered attendees who can prove residency by showing a copy of their most recent LADWP bill or a California ID reflecting a City of LA address. Qualified residents will receive a 30-minute orientation on how to properly install and maintain their rain barrels.

Only one barrel will be provided per household, so if you're in need of more, LADWP is continuing its offer of a $100 per barrel rebate (through SoCal Water$mart) if you buy your own. The rebate is limited to four barrels per household.

Seven Best Places to Visit in and Around Avalon on Catalina Island

Just 22 miles off the coast of Los Angeles, Catalina continues to draw visitors with its miles of uninterrupted shoreline, abundant marine life, water sports and dazzling nightlife — much of which can still be enjoyed today in much the same way it was a century ago (with some high-tech improvements).
