Repurposing anything is always the best result, aside from reducing your waste. These are just some of the many great ways you can repurpose your rainwater tank.

• Turn it into a small garden bed. All you have to do is cut the tank down to size and use the lower portion as a planter. It’ll look fantastic, especially if your tank is galvanised iron!

• Old rainwater tanks are great for creating a basic feeding trough for livestock, if you’re on a rural property.

• A metal rainwater tank can easily be transformed into a large firepit. It’ll last a long time and add plenty of atmosphere to your garden or outdoor area.

• Old tanks are also fantastic for storage, for all kinds of material. For instance, cutting a rainwater tank to shape can turn it into a great storage option for firewood.

• Perhaps you want to create a small pond or water feature in your garden… your old rainwater tank could be perfect for this! Simply cut it to shape and place it in your backyard.

There are plenty of other ways to use your old rainwater tank too. By doing this, you’ll be saving money, time and the environment.

Recycle It

Old galvanised iron rainwater tanks are easily recyclable, as are the newer plastic ones.

However, the issue when it comes to recycling water tanks is often the fact that they can be quite awkward to move.

They’re heavy, bulky items. Therefore, you’ll probably need some extra strength and a trailer or ute to take them to a recycling facility.

So it’s not always easy! However, there is an easier way…
