    Where is everyone getting bulk salt and deicer from in the Chicago/Northern Illinois area and what are you paying? Im waiting for a price from Central Salt but havent seen it yet.

    IIRC Central was $85 for purple slicer. I'm buying it second hand b/c I don't have a place to store it. Pretty sure that's what it was though. That's delivered to NW IN from Lemont a semi load at a time.

    Alright, guess I will wait to see what they say. Been a couple weeks since I talked to them and they said they would get me a quote.

    They are usually real good about getting back to me. I'd call them again

    How much is everyone charging for bulk applied? I got a quote finally from Central Salt for "bulk deicing salt" at $68.50 pr ton.

    And honestly, spend the extra few bucks for the good stuff. I can give you several reasons why if you'd like.

    Anyone know any supplier that sells the super sacks or totes? Central doesnt, and they got pissed at me when i said i wanted to go that route this year instead of doing bulk.

    Frick services in Burns Harbor sells super sacs of both white sale and Clearlane. Like everyone said, get the good stuff. You will not be dissappointed that you did.
