Free plastic barrels

I happened to come across your blog about rain barrels. I wanted to let you know that just today I picked up two from the local Coca-Cola distributor in Fort Wayne off Airport Expressway.

The best news? They are free. Call ahead as times are limited. But the people are very friendly and willing to help out in any way they can.

Editors note:Coca- Cola, 5010 Airport Express, has given out free plastic barrels but call, 747-1804, to make sure they have some available.
