Yes! The City of Edmond has an Upcycle terra cotta rain barrel on permanent display in the 1st floor lobby of the Planning & Public Works Building at 10 S Littler Ave. If you have questions about the program after looking at the rain barrel, please go upstairs to the Engineering Department on the 2nd floor to speak with the Event Coordinator, Jordan Peebles.

Upcycle requests a phone number in order to provide the City of Edmond with a quick contact method should a homeowner neglect to pick up their order on the day of the event. The provided phone number will only be used to arrange a new pick-up time, and will not be shared or used for any other purpose.

Yes! You can still reap the benefits of owning a rain barrel without gutters. Walk around your home during a rain event and observe where rain water drips from your roof line. Remember the area where you see the most drainage and place your rain barrel under that spot. Adding a “rain chain” under the roof crease in that location will help to divert the rain directly into your rain barrel.
