Rain Barrels & Accessories

Rain barrels now available for home delivery direct from our partner, Upcycle Products. Click here to 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!
