    bulk salt

    There is a place in the mill area that sells it, I think if you go into the port of Indiana and ask the guard he will be able to tell you. And its really cheap compared to bagged salt. One of my subs gets it there and he said 4 tons was like 160 bucks. I was like WOW, Hope this helps.

    I'm going to check the Port today or tomorrow and I'll let you guys know. That would be great to get it right there! I worked at the mill next door till the layoffs and I never heard of it but I'll check

    I'll check them out too. Do you know how much they are running price wise? cheapest I have found so far for a pallet of bagged salt is 236 for about 2500 lbs. I'm still pricing out bulk.

    the place in the port is called Frick Services. They are a transfer station for most of the salt in the region. I dont have the number at home but email me and ill give it to you. kale@ground-specialist.com i think they are around 70 /ton. i preordered 400 ton in march so its been awhile

    the port is not the main office. It would be VERY helpful to ask for heidi frick. She is the owner.... The employees at the port are sometimes slow. here is her office number 800 552 1754 Frickservices.com
