Rain Barrel RebatesMany cities, water districts, and conservation agencies offer rain barrel rebates! We’ve linked to a few rebate programs here.  This list is by no means exhaustive, so be sure to check with your local jurisdiction or water district if you don’t see a listing here.

Please Note: Each rebating agency has it’s own terms of eligibility. It is the customer’s responsibility to communicate with the rebating agency to determine eligibility and apply for rebate funds. Many BlueBarrel customers have benefitted from local rebate programs, however BlueBarrel cannot guarantee any rebate application outcomes.
