    Thats higher than what sand/salt is sold for in Maine.

    When I bought it last year from a supply yard, I was paying 16 a yard with a discout. The average joe paid 22 a yard.

    I can make a yard of sand/salt mix for around 10 a yard. 3 dollars for a yard of sand/ and 7 dollars for salt (Note & dollars is on the high side). Only ya always got to have a fudge factor.

    I just paid $32 a ton for 40% salt/60% sand mix. Good stuff, very coarse sand and enough salt to do some melting. I don't use much mix, none at all last year and only a little over 3 tons this time, most of which is still on the truck. Straight salt is $60 ton at the yard.
