The Town of Fort Mill Stormwater Department is excited to offer our new Rain Barrel program in spring of 2023!  Anyone may purchase a rain barrel for use at their home or business, you do not need to be a Town of Fort Mill resident to purchase a rain barrel.  

Our sale is now open!  To purchase your rain barrel, click here!

If you are a Town of Fort Mill resident, you may also apply for a Stormwater Fee Credit once you install your rain barrel.  

Why should you purchase a rain barrel?  Rain barrels capture water from a roof and hold it for later use such as on lawns, gardens, or indoor plants. Collecting roof runoff in rain barrels reduces the amount of water that flows from your property. It's a great way to conserve water and it's free water for use in your landscape.

All orders must be picked up by customers (or their representatives) in person.  The rain barrels easily nest, 2 to 3 will fit in the back seat of a 4 door sedan.  Hatchback vehicles with the seats folded down will fit 3 to 6 nested rain barrels.  Tie downs are needed for open truck beds. 

Our pick up date will be Saturday April 1st 2023 from 9am to 12pm.
