Discounts and Rebates Offered on Rain Barrels

Carlsbad residents can get low cost rain barrels through two programs, one that offers rain barrels at a discount and the other that provides a rebate for rain barrels purchased.

Rain barrels collect water from the roofs of homes through gutters and downspouts for use on landscaping. 

“People would be surprised how quickly a rain barrel can fill up during a storm,” said Mario Remillard, water conservation coordinator for the Carlsbad Municipal Water District. “A home’s roof has a lot of surface area to gather the water and direct into a barrel for later use.” 

Discounted rain barrels

  • Order rain barrels through the Solana Center for Environmental Innovations. Rain barrels are $90 (retail price is $129). The deadline to order is Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 11 p.m.
  • Pick up rain barrels at 137 North El Camino Real, Encinitas on Saturday, March 2 between 9 a.m. and noon.
