Rain Barrels & Accessories

Rain barrels now available for home delivery direct from our partner, Upcycle Products. Click here to order! Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, please expect a delay in receiving your order.

TLC is excited to be working with Upcycle Products to offer high quality, 50/55-gallon rain barrels at a great price. The barrels are made from heavy, food-grade polyethylene containers that have been recycled, so may show minor wear. Barrels are BPA free and come in black, grey, green, blue or terra cotta.

Rain barrels have a mesh screen on top to keep mosquitoes out, and there are two locations possible for the spigot - one as shown, and the other much nearer to the bottom of the barrel. Barrels can be connected using a hose (purchased separately) to dramatically increase the amount of rainwater saved. Click here to watch a how-to video or view this guide made by our friends at The Conservation Foundation in DuPage County, who use Upcycle rain barrels as well!
