Rain Barrel Program at Falls Township
Falls Township currently has 55-gallon Rain Barrels available for purchase at the Falls Township Municipal Building.
A rain barrel is a great way to keep stormwater out of the system and cut down on your water bill! Only ¼ inch of rainfall runoff from the average roof will completely fill a typical barrel providing an ample supply of free “soft water” containing no chlorine, lime or calcium. Rainwater is ideal for watering plantings, vegetable gardens and lawns as well as washing your car or windows. In the event of a water shortage, drought or water supply contamination, a rain barrel provides you with an emergency water supply.
Collecting rainwater is easy using a rain barrel! Simply position the barrel below the water downspout of your roof. The barrels are neutral in color to easily blend in anywhere around your house. Full installation instructions as well as an overflow hose, clamp and faucet are included with the rain barrel at a price of $57. For additional information, please contact the Falls Township Finance Department at (215) 949-9000.
Police Alert: Please be mindful to lock your vehiclesPlease be aware that there have been a string of robberies as of late. Try and remove valuables from your vehicle when possible, and to always leave your vehicle locked. Below is a Channel 6ABC news story related to these thefts:
Compost Bins Are Available> Falls Township currently has 80-gallon Earth Machine Compost Bins available for purchase for $45 at the Municipal building
The Earth Machine is a durable backyard compost bin designed to compost food and yard waste, effectively diverting it from landfills. The resulting compost can be used in lawns and gardens to provide much needed nutrients, while helping to retain moisture in the soil.
Using compost on your gardens returns organic material back into the natural cycle and promotes a healthy soil ecosystem. The result is significantly higher yields, with a substantial reduction in soil erosion.
The Earth Machine is designed for easy, passive composting - just start filling the bin, water, and occasionally stir or poke. The finished compost is ready in four to six months. According to the EPA, one person generates an average of approximately 1.35 pounds of organic waste per day. That equals almost 500 pounds per person every year. Backyard composting is an effective way of recycling organic wastes such as leaves, grass and food scraps that are generated at home and usually put out to the curb for disposal.
