With the Village of Brookfield ending its rain barrel program on December 31, 2016, we have received inquiries about low-cost alternatives.
The Metropolitan Water Reclamation District has launched a new program for area residents. Using the new program, you are able to purchase the rain barrels at cost for $47, directly through the district. Here is a link to their website: https://www.mwrd.org/irj/portal/anonymous/rainbarrel.
It also recommended that residents look at retail options including “buying local” (e.g., True Value Hardware at 8 Corners).
