SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) – The city of Savannah is selling low-priced rain barrel and composter on Saturday.
The city's Water Resources Bureau will be selling 80-gallon composters for $45 and 55-gallon rain barrels for $55. The sale takes place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at East Broad Elementary School. Check and credits card payments will be accepted.
Rain barrels capture storm water from a home roof and reduce the runoff into tidal creeks and rivers, helping to protect wildlife and water quality, according to the city. Stored water can be used for watering landscapes and gardens, helping to preserve drinking water.
For more information on the sale or the city's water conservation efforts, call Laura Walker with the City's Environmental Affairs Office at 912.651.2221.
