about $320 Bze a load. Supposedly an 8 yard truck. We usually count as about 7 yards to allow for shortage.

What kind of sand are you asking about? Landscape or construction?
I've had to learn that there are different types of sand for different construction features. More than I needed to know.

Does anyone have the telephone number for any of the island sand haulers down south? Not listed in the Yellow Pages. LOL

Does Caribbean Depot still do shipping from Belize City and if they do, does anybody have an e-mail address for them?
