Try sand - its a natural product and heats the snow as a result of attracting sunlight and trapping heat.

Sand is also reusable for the next winters to come. Just sweep them up into a bucket in the spring.

We are looking into Urea and other chemical fertilizers. They environmentally more friendly than rock salt depending on the amout applied but also have a higher price tag. The first is not much of a problem for most of our facilities as we don't get much snow in Kentuky or California where most of our plants are, but the second can be a stumbling block. Mike J.
