2017 TOWN RAIN BARREL PROGRAM CONCLUDES
HOME DELIVERY IS NOW AVAILABLE!!
The Merrillville Rain Barrel Program has concluded for 2017. The Merrillville Stormwater Utility department thanks the residents and non-residents who participated in this year's program.
UpCycle Products, the company that Merrillville and other municipalities use for their rain barrel programs, still offers rain barrels for sale to anyone living in Lake, Porter and LaPorte Counties. They are 55-gallon rain barrels made from recycled food grade barrels and are available in gray, terra cotta, blue and black. Northwest Indiana residents can order online at www.upcycle-products.com; on the right-hand side of their home page is the section for order forms; click on the tab titled “Indiana Municipal Programs” and then click on “Merrillville”. The cost is $61.50, which includes a $2.50 online credit card handling fee and a $5 delivery fee; other rain barrel accessories are also available from UpCycle. The rain barrel will be delivered to your home within 5-7 business days from the order date.
For further information, please call UpCycle Products directly at (815) 735-9583. The Town of Merrillville is not involved in the home delivery program; however, residents and non-residents may still order a rain barrel through UpCycle Products.
