OKLAHOMA CITY - The City of Oklahoma City, Yukon, Midwest City and the Central Oklahoma Storm Water Alliance (COSWA) are partnering to encourage residents to conserve water and reduce pollution through the use of rain barrels.

"Rain barrels are a way for homeowners to save money by saving water," said Oklahoma City's Environmental Protection Manager Raymond Melton. "Not only can they use the water collected in the rain barrel to water their gardens, they are also actively helping the environment by reducing pollution in local streams and rivers."

The discounted rain barrels are offered online at Upcycle Products Inc. starting at $61 plus $2.50 online handling fee. Once you are at the Upcycle Products Inc. website, click on the right side of the page and choose West Metro/Yukon.

Rain barrels ordered online can be picked up from noon to 4 p.m. on July 18 and from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on July 19 at 1035 Industrial Drive in Yukon. Bring your online order confirmation to the pickup event.

Future rain barrel pick up events will take place in Midwest City in October 2014 and Oklahoma City in March 2015.
