Reminder: If you pre-ordered a rain barrel, they will be arriving today and ready for pick-up. In an effort to stagger pickups, we are asking residents to arrive between 4pm and 5pm if their last name begins with A-L. Last names beginning with M-Z are asked to pick-up between 5pm and 6pm, if possible.
Due to COVID 19, strict procedures are being enforced for the rain barrel distribution. Please read carefully and adhere to the following:
~ Before you arrive, prepare your vehicle by removing all car seats and large items from your vehicle; where possible, leave passengers at home. One barrel slides into the back seat of most 4 door sedans, two barrels fit in the back of most SUVs and wagons.
~ When you arrive at the DPW Administration Building, all items will be in the parking lot. Barrels and any corresponding accessories will be clearly labeled with the last name of the purchaser and arranged in alphabetical order. You must know what name the order was placed under; it is often helpful to bring your receipt along. If someone is picking up for you, please be sure they know this information.
~ Once you have located your item(s), you may load them into your vehicle.
~ An attendant will be on site during the distribution; if you require assistance loading, please remain in your vehicle and the attendant will assist you.
~ Masks must be worn.
~ Pick-up is today, Wednesday, June 17th between 4:00pm and 6:00pm at the DPW Administration Building, 257 Fisher Street Franklin, MA
