Have you ever wanted to have a rain barrel for you garden, but were turned

off by the cost of the commercial ones available in the big box stores?


E-Z Tree Recycling has a solution for you.


We buy dye in plastic barrels of approximate 35 gallon capacity.  Since

the vendor doesn’t want them back we have steady supply of barrels looking

to be repurposed.  You provide the fittings and labor!

Rain Barrels

Barrels could use a good scrubbing to get the dye off.  Be sure to wear old clothes, and wash any dye streaks off your clothes while they are still damp.  Once the dye dries, it is harder to get off.


Is the red and brown dyed mulch safe?

The barrels have many other potential uses. For example, Zombie proof storage for your End of The World survival stash! Cut in half they make good planters. Buried in the ground and filled with gravel you can make your own drywell.  Give me your ideas to add to the list!
