Rain Barrel Installation Workshop

The City of Hoboken Green Team is hosting its fourth Rain Barrel Installation Workshop on Thursday, July 16, 2015 from 7:00PM to 9:00PM. This workshop is open to all Hudson County residents interested in installing a rain barrel on their property. Participants will  retrofit a 55 gallon recycled food grade plastic drum into a fully functional rain barrel. Participants will receive a free rain barrel at the conclusion of the workshop. The rain barrels were purchased from Rutgers Cooperative Extension Water Resources Program by the City of Hoboken Green Team through Sustainable Jersey grant funding There are only 4 more rain barrels available to give away!

The following questions should be considered before registering for this workshop.
1.     Does your home have an exterior downspout from the roof?
2.     Is the downspout accessible at ground level?
3.     Do you have an open area at ground level (immediately next to downspout) to install the rain barrel (approx 4′ x 4′)?
4.     Can the proposed area support the weight of a full rain barrel (approx 400lbs)?

If you cannot answer YES to all of these questions, your property may not be ideal for a rain barrel.

Participation is limited to the first 4 Hudson County residents who register. Please register by submitting the form below.
