The cities of Champaign and Urbana are once again selling rain barrels and compost bins. They are $55 each, and that price includes home delivery.
It’s possible to subsidize your barrel purchase if you pay a stormwater utility fee to either city. Select the “Champaign resident” or “Urbana residents” and you will pay $26 or $30, respectively. If for some reason you are ineligible for the subsidy, you will be contacted after purchase.
