Letter to the Editor for Seekonk Residents


The Seekonk Recycling Committee would like to thank the residents of our town for taking advantage of our rain barrel promotion through the Great American Rain Barrel Company of Hyde Park, MA, last month. When we first proposed the project to the manufacturer, we did not anticipate the response nor the attention of the media on the effects of a summertime drought in our area. We are sure that had a lot to do with the result in which a total of 81 barrels were purchased, as compared with 25-30 sold three years ago in a similar promotion. We offered a discount on the price of the first 50 barrels sold in the hopes we could generate enough interest to reach that goal. As the result of the feedback we have received this time, we will consider having another promotion next year, hopefully with more satisfied owners collecting precious rainwater for their yards and gardens.
