    Im looking to set up a bin for sand/salt mix. Im in Newport, RI. Where can I buy bin blocks? How much do they usually cost?

    Also, if I keep it covered should I be alright? Or am I wasting my time and its just going to freeze up and be junk?

    Any local concrete suppliers should have them. Down here they run $40-$45 per block, plus $200/hr for delivery

    Yeah thats what I figured. I called a local quarry today and they want $80 a block. Just a standard 2x2x6' block, no knotches or anything. A tad to steep for me, Ill keep calling around. Thanks!

    check with a cement company with mixer trucks. They make the blocks from left over material and generally are cheaper.
