  • Free Perlite ???

    For those near Portland Oregon, this add is on Craig's List.

    Free Perlite Stone - 100,000 lbs

    Some manufacture has a spare 100,000 pounds (45,454 kg) of perlite, they are apparently giving away! Comes in 1,000 bags they will load with a fork lift...

    The price is right, but...

    Re: Free Perlite ???

    That's a great deal, too bad our roads are ice covered and we are expecting even more snow and a bit of wind this weekend. They say 1000 lb bag minimum, (wiki says 30 to 150 kgs per cubic meter density so there's a huge variance possible) They are probably giving it away in what we know as a "supersack" approx 4 ft x 4ft x 4ft. That's a great deal for someone close who is building and has a garden. If it were summer I'd be on the road in spite of the six hour drive one way.

      James should run up there and grab it, slap FB stickers on it and sell it as "Specially Formulated Pizza Oven Insulation Material" $$
