    $32.00-47.00 per ton... $32.00 is for straight white rock salt, $40.00 for white rock salt treated with Mag. Chloride liquid (salt is blue), or $47.00 for treated white rock salt/road sand mix..

    American Rock Salt plant is less than 10 miles from my house

    There is usually a minimum required to get bulk rates. Most places are by the trailer load. In other words, about 40tons in 1 pop. :cool:

    Rule of Thumb:

    Bulk sodium chloride = 72 lbs per square ft. or 1944 lbs per cu yard.
