    Hey ct plower,Im from middletown and in the same boat.If you are looking for bulk sand/salt im not sure who does it but im sure its out there.If you are just looking for spreaders filled before a storm there is a landscaping company across from uncle bobs on rt 66 that filled them last season.Also Koguts in meriden has sand and salt they might even have bulk sand to deliver.If you just want bagged salt easiest way is to get pallets from home depot or landscaper supply in cromwell. Hope this helps a little....There was also a place up in rocky hill (up shunpike road) just past general paving that filled sanders with a mix sand/salt im not sure the name of the business.

    Thanks jt5019, we'll see if we get any other replies, but I'll check that guy across from Uncle Bob's.

    I'm surprised Uncle Bob's doesn't get into supplying the stuff!!

    Maybe I'll go have a talk with them.

    Uncle bobs very well might, i havnt checked but i know they usually have a pile for their own trucks im sure they would be willing to sell some by the yard. I believe the company thats near uncle bobs is called New Image landscaping.
