Free Rain Barrels – Get on the Notification List Today! West Basin Rain Barrel Program

Are you ready if El Niño brings lots of rain? Catch the rainwater - and savings - with a free rain barrel from West Basin. Collecting and reusing rainwater reduces the amount of water flowing into storm drains, local water ways and helps ensure every drop of water is used efficiently.

Rain barrel distribution events, co-hosted with a local non-profit or civic organization, will take place this fall. Click the image at left or here for a flyer. To get on a notification list, go to or call South Bay Environmental Services Center at 310.371.4633 and ask about “West Basin’s rain barrel program."
