I bought this tandem rain barrel set-up off Craigslist, and Mr. Trashbasher was nice enough to put it up for me. Our one rain barrel was filling up way too fast, so we needed more capacity.
Our first rain barrel is the small one on the left.
After one big rainstorm the first barrel filled up. Then the next day it rained again, and the second barrel filled up! I love our new rain barrels! The guy I bought these from did a really nice job of making them.
I created this blog for the Twin Cities area of Minneapolis and St. Paul, Minnesota, because people always ask me, "Now where can I recycle (insert item here) again?" I'm passionate about reducing, reusing and recycling, and I drive my friends and family nutty with my constant exhortations. I'm also very gung-ho to expand curbside composting.
Until Feb. 2010 I was a newspaper copy editor. Now my passion and my vocation have merged, and I'm working for Hennepin County's Dept. of Environmental Services on waste reduction and recycling!
