    They are most likely buying as part of a consotium that quite a few tons in MA. belong to that allows them to buy cheaper. I have never heard of anybody paying as little as they do.

    We are at $65 a ton for straight salt by the trailer load.

    I never had to buy it.

    My salt was always supplied either by the state or private contracts,so I never had to chase it.
    That price above was approved by the Town board the other night so I know it is real.
