    I'm looking for bulk salt in Chicago, I'm next to O'hare airport. Only looking to buy 1 ton or per yard or may be a little more, I could pick up.

    Russo's is a bit closer for you. Bensenville to Northbrook is a long ride for one ton.

    Correct--Russo does not have bulk in Schiller, only Naperville. And they do only delivered truckloads. If you can take 10 tons, I can send a six-wheeler, or bring it out in my own truck at the end of my day.

    PM & let me know!

    Lurvey's is selling bulk salt this year. I think they want $115/ton picked up.
