Size is 50-gallon.Once installed, Prince George’s County residents can apply for a Rain Check Rebate, off-setting most of the cost!Rain barrels come with lid, overflow cap, pre-installed screen and ring, flex overflow hose, ball valve – spigot, re-usable zip ties, hose clamp and rubber washer. Diverter kit is not included.

YARD WASTE CARTS

$25.00 FOR RESIDENTS TO PURCHASE

The beige yard waste cart can be used for either “soft yard waste” or “woody yard waste.” The two products are collected on separate days and processed into different products.
