There Is No Such Thing As Free Salt (Or Sand)

Go to Buckland Ends Free Salt & Sand Service. The town has been letting residents take salt and sand at no charge. They expected people to just take a bucket or two, but

""We had some instances where contractors, non residents were coming across, filling up their sand trucks and taking them back to whatever towns," says Town Selectman Stefan Racz. "They're salting driveways and charging people for it with our salt.""

A good is scarce if there is not enough of it if it were given away free of charge. This is what happened with the salt and sand.
