The two website addresses announced earlier this week to order Rain Barrels in Smiths Falls and Westport are not fully prepared to accept online orders and prepayment. ON THESE TWO SITES, YOU CAN RESERVE YOUR RAIN BARREL, RECEIVE YOUR PICK UP RECEIPT AND THEN BRING CASH ON SALE DAY TO COMPLETE THE PURCHASE. Prepayment is not yet available.
The website address for the Manotick sale is fully functional taking preorders, prepayment by credit card and giving pick up receipts.
Our supplier, Rainbarrel.ca, is hoping to get the ordering wrinkles ironed out but cannot give us a date.
Rideau Valley Conservation Foundation and our community partners sincerely regret any inconvenience and frustration related to trying to order your Smiths Falls or Westport barrels in the last 48 hours. We hope you will stick with us through this rough patch and reserve your barrels online. Thank you!
