    $100/ton Nice, fine white granules. In Prince William County. Place is called Commonwealth Recycled Aggregates. Drive by it all the time, never knew they sold salt. No more 150+/ton!

    lol, yea, that crossed my mind. Dont know about shipping international, I figured that was a joke anyway. What do you guys pay average up there in Canada?

    Damn, figured you all got it cheaper than us down here! Guess everyones running out. Honestly Baltimore MD has it for about $75/ton if u get 25 or more, but that was 2 months ago.

    As a general rule of thumb, EVERYTHING is cheaper in the US than in Canada.

    Try Virginia Outdoor Power, they have good sand and salt in bulk AND bagged. I haven't purchased any but I use them for lawn care supplies and I would trust them for ice control.

    Has anyone used them for ice control? Also where can I get some good ice melt for concrete in NOVA?

    Thanks

    We have an shipment of salt due to arrive next Thursday/Friday. Due to the high demand nationwide and in order to prevent the state from seizing it upon arrival we are pre-selling the salt. From what we can see on the market this is the only salt due to arrive in the U.S. in time to be useful.
    Funds must be transferred and cleared for tonnage requested no later than Tuesday Feb. 12th We were forced to pay for special loading terms and reconfigure the loading ports schedule to accommodate our vessel, we paid a premium for the vessel due to short notice and a premium for the salt.

    Therefore the price of salt is $140.00/ton FOB & pre-payment. Our pile is located at the Port of Wilmington in Delaware in zip code 19801…….about 30 miles south of Philadelphia, PA. http://portofwilmington.com/ We only have 35,000/tons, we are getting requests from Canada and all over the U.S.
    We expect our tonnage to be depleted quickly, supply is limited and on a first come first serve basis.

    We apologize for the high cost however in order to get the salt here within required time we had to secure positions so our vessel will arrive 2 weeks before all other salt shipments are due to arrive.

    We have calcium and magnesium chloride pellets in super sacks $850.00/each sack contains approximately 2200lbs.
    Our solution to the high price bags....We have 1/ton super sacks of bulk salt with YPS (ANTI-CAKING AGENT) for $250.00/each. Since we are bagging undried salt the YPS is to try an prevent caking of the salt, should be ok if used within a 2week period.
    FOB Marcus Hook, PA 19061

    Recycled aggregates is back up to $150 a ton but their hardwood mulch price is the best I've seen anywhere.

    Wow - sometimes things are cheaper in Canada.... those are crazy numbers, and so far, no rumours of a shortage here.
