Rain Barrel Program

The County is pleased to announce that it has received a grant to provide FREE rain barrels to homeowners in the City of Syracuse. Over 1200 rain barrels have been distributed to city residents.

In order to receive a rain barrel, homeowners must attend a brief rain barrel workshop.

For a list of upcoming workshops, contact Khris Dodson for more information.

Participants will also be required to authorize a Rain Barrel Agreement Form. Forms will be provided at the workshops.

To assist everyone who receives a rain barrel, we have developed a companion guide to installing and maintaining your rain barrel.

Also, Onondaga County’s Community Development Division reinforces the Save the Rain program by providing rain barrels for each home in their Homeownership Program.
