Frederick County Recycling Annual Rain Barrel Sale

Frederick County Recycling will hold its annual Rain Barrel Sale from 8 a.m. to noon on Fri., April 1 at the Stephenson Citizens’ Convenience Site, 235 Hot Run Drive. The location is directly next to the Stonewall Park Ballfields along Stephenson Road. 55-gallon recycled plastic rain barrels come complete with an insect screen, lid, overflow hose and easy set-up instructions. Barrels sell for $60 each payable on the day of the event by cash or check.

“Frederick County’s annual barrel sales provide area gardeners the opportunity to conserve a valuable natural resource at an affordable price,” said Gloria Puffinburger, Frederick County’s solid waste manager. “Plants and lawns actually prefer rainwater to treated water. Rain barrels lessen the demand on our central water system and wells during dry, summer months.”

No reservations please. Barrels will be sold on a first come, first served basis.
