    I overbought some sand mixed with Calcium. it's actually quite effective for traction & melting. I will load your truck for 35.00/ ton. I am in Garden City. Some of my accounts decided to pay the 110% increase in salt instead of sand so I have roughly 40 tons extra.

    buyer beware!

    once this stuff gets wet it is junk.....or at least plain sand again, even humidity can harm it......it "rinses" the calcium off the sand since there is not a very strong bond between the two

    edit: i should add that i am not saying this pile is bad but i am saying to make sure you check it out carefully. one of the best ways to do that is by showing up during one of the coldest days of the year and make sure NONE of the pile is frozen
