    I looking for a place to get ice melt in eastern MA. I go through about 75-100 50 lb bags per season so I'd like to just get a pallet or two. I have room to store them so that's not a problem.
    I have been buying it at the local big box stores, but I know I'm over paying. As I have gained more accounts, I'm going through alot more ice melt and it's a pain to grab a 10-12 bags at a time as I need them. Having a pallet of it in the garage next to my plow would be much more convenient. I've been using SWI Roadrunner brand.

    Anyone know of a place I can get a pallet or two in metrowest or south shore MA?

    Thank You

    See if there is a Valley Green in your area, they are a fertilizer/ grass seed dealer. They sell all kinds of ice- melt, rock salt, bagged materials.

    X2 on Gallo, I think a pallet of treated bagged salt that is around $250 where a ton of non bagged is less than a hundred, buy a bunch of buckets and fill them yourself, a little more work but cheaper in the long run. If your looking for any calcium products check out www.meltsnow.com.
