Rain Barrel Program

The rain barrel program WILL
BE BACK IN SPRING OF 2023

Onondaga County residents are eligible to receive a free rain barrel after attending a brief instructional workshop.


The 2022 Rain Barrel Program was presented with the assistance of our valued partners at Cornell Cooperative Extension.

Save The Rain's Rain Barrel Program is a great way to contribute to enhancing water quality in our local waterways. Combined sewers in Syracuse can overflow during wet weather, and the use of rain barrels can help reduce the amount of pollutants going into Onondaga Lake and its tributaries by reducing runoff from roofs.

Rain Barrel Art Contest

In years past, students from our Elementary, Junior High and High Schools designed their own rain barrel art, with chosen finalists given the opportunity to make their design a reality by painting a barrel! Members of the community voted to select their favorite barrel in each age category.
