SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

The City of Savannah is accepting online orders for low-priced rain barrels and composters.

Rain barrels can capture storm water from a home roof and reduce the runoff into tidal creeks and rivers, helping to protect wildlife and water quality. Stored water can be used for watering landscapes and gardens while composters will turn yard or food waste into compost to enrich your soil.

65-gallon composters will be available for 62 dollars while 50-gallon rain barrels can be ordered for 65 dollars. Regular retail prices range from $89-$129. To place an order, go to http://www.rainbarrelprogram.org/savannah. Orders accepted until March 2nd.

Rain barrels and composters will be able to be picked up on Saturday, March 8th in Daffin Park near Grayson Stadium between 8 a.m. and noon. A limited number of them will be available to purchase during the event. Checks and credit cards will be accepted on-site and rain barrels and composters not pre-ordered will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

For more information, contact Laura Walker with the City's Environmental Affairs Office at (912) 651-2221.
