Rain Barrels

DMRI is working with RainBarrel.ca to offer better prices to our membership.

Rain Barrels:

  • save on your water bills
  • water gardens with fresh rainwater instead of treated tap water and
  • are part of the ecologically-correct movement to slow rain down by filtering it through the earth rather than have it pick up toxins running down pavement and into storm systems.

Rain Barrels are selling for $55 to all members of the DMRI – that’s less than half of what you would pay for a new product at a retail store. $15 of your purchase price goes directly back to the DMRI to support the work of this volunteer organization to maintain Don Mills as one of the finest communities in Metropolitan Toronto in which to live.

Recycled & New Barrels

Whether referred to as reused, reconditioned or recycled, our focus is on distributing rain barrels that previously contained fruit, vegetables and other food grade items. Our rain barrels are the most environmentally friendly available and although considered the “greenest” they are typically available in slate grey, terracotta or black. Standard features include a top filter basket, top-side overflow and barrel-to-barrel interconnectivity outlet, overflow hose and a bottom-side spigot with garden hose thread.
