Salt and Sand

Anyone near Auburn MA. Some times I need to get sand and salt mix in a pinch for my accounts. Any one know where to buy it near Auburn MA?

salting sand

Depending on your tonnage desired-

You may well be better off mixing it yourself
and packing it in buckets with a bit of windshield
washer fluid to keep it flowing.

BUT-I would check with the local gravel pits first to find
out if they are stocking it in bulk and if not, they would be
able to tell you who is selling it.

the highway departments rough mix their own typically

The Morton salting sand product is blended as it is packed
in buckets.

the problem with getting it from the pits in bulk in the winter is the frozen chunks, i generally store 10 or so yards indoors along with our bulk salt just incase we need it.

salt and sand

True, very true, thats why I say its better to bucket it all and throw in some Windshield Washer Fluid or alcohol.

Why use a product that is bad for everything. Why not use a treated salt that will work much better then any sand. Even if they want it for traction, are they going to be happy with the clean up of the lots and the sewers, also if the town or city knows that you use sand the city might make you pay to have the sewers vaced out.

You would turn off rt. 20 onto Westborough Street by Chuck-E-Cheese. The address is Technically 109 Creeper Hill Road in North Grafton (part of our yard is in Worcester). We have a scale and try to keep 750 tons stocked. You can call 774-244-0106 or email thesnowman@thenaturallandscape.com for more info.

I'm actually related to Paul at Worcester County. He has a two yard minimum so beware if you have a smaller sander. I buy all my bulk from Bond Sand & Gravel in Spencer on Rt.31.
