Rain barrel workshop could help reduce your sewer bill
Adding a rain barrel to your gutter system can help control surface water—and reduce your sewer bill. Home Repair Resource Center's (HRRC) upcoming workshop, Building a Rain Barrel, will provide hands-on instruction. Participants can opt to build a rain barrel during the class, or choose to observe the process only. The class will take place on Monday, April 8, 7–9 p.m., at HRRC’s Teaching Center, 2520 Noble Road in Cleveland Heights.
Reservations are required, and this class fills quickly; to reserve a spot, call 216-381-6100, x16 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. The fee for the class only (no rain barrel to take home) is $10 for Cleveland Heights residents, $15 for nonresidents. The fee for the class plus materials (build a rain barrel in class to take home) is $60 for Cleveland Heights residents, $65 for nonresidents.
Reservations and payment for the class-plus-materials option must be made by April 1, so that HRRC can purchase enough materials.
