PLYMOUTH – The town of Plymouth has received a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection to provide 100 SkyJuice rain barrels to Plymouth residents at the discounted price of $65, almost 40 percent off the retail price of $125. The town has teamed with SkyJuice New England to offer these rain barrels to help residents conserve water, save money and reduce stormwater runoff. Once the 100 DEP rain barrels are sold, residents may purchase the SkyJuice Rain Barrels for $75. SkyJuice rain barrels are made from 60-gallon recycled food-grade barrels and are available in four colors: terra cotta, grey, black and blue. The town accepted orders for rain barrels through May 21, and has scheduled a rain barrel pickup day from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 30 at Stephens Field.
