Rain Barrel Program

How it Works​

The City of Aurora, The Conservation Foundation, and Upcycle Products are collaborating again this year to provide discounted rain barrels to Aurora residents.

An effective way to conserve water during the summer and fall months, rain barrels collect fresh water from rooftop gutter systems for use on lawns and gardens. In addition, rain barrels help to reduce runoff pollutants, improve hydration to plants with natural water and could help to lower water bills with consistent usage.


​How to Order


55-gallon rain barrels are available in five colors – black, blue, gray, green and terra cotta – for the discounted price of $60 plus tax and can be picked at the Downtown Aurora Farmer’s Market on Saturday, June 13 from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. in Parking Lot B (west side of Water Street, between Downer Place and Benton Street).

For an additional $5 fee, rain barrels can be delivered directly to the purchaser's home in 5-7 business days.

Order your barrel now!

Rain barrel accessories, composters and plant hangers are also available for discounted prices. A portion of all sales will be donated to the Conservation Foundation.
