Rain Barrel Discount

The City of Thunder Bay Environment Division makes a limited number of $20 discounts available on a yearly basis for the purchase of rain barrels at EcoSuperior.

EcoSuperior delivers this program on behalf of City of Thunder Bay.

What Are the Benefits of a Rain Barrel?
A rain barrel will catch some of the rain runoff from your roof via a downspout, conserving the fresh, soft water for use in your garden, and reducing your need to water with for tap water. Not only does this benefit your plants and save you money, but it helps the environment by reducing rain runoff travelling to the City's storm sewer system.

As rain runoff moves across the ground/pavement, it picks up soil from the ground and contaminants from pavements. The runoff and its components put a strain on the storm sewer system, and eventually reach Lake Superior. Reducing runoff reduces soil leaching and surface damage, and contamination of Lake Superior and its contributing creeks and rivers. Let's keep our water clean!
