    I'm getting salt for about 140 a ton deliverd how much up charge would you guys put on that. I don't even know Double seems to be alot to me?

    Also I know this kinda of sounds crazy but in a bid they asked for pricing on different salt substitutes for whatever reason and they want a price on Sinders, was wondering if anyone had an info on this or even any type of a price per a certin amount I can put down.

    I think its called "cinders" as in the stuff left over after a fire. Its from long ago when people would put this down on ice. I guess (from what my Dad tells me) it works. What the environmental ramifications would be, I don't know. Where one would get them anymore I have no idea. Maybe a coal fired power plant???
