Why are some materials sold in Tons and some in Cubic Yards?
Tons are a more accurate measurement we can use. Cubic yards are a volume sale. Everything in our bins is sold in volume or cubic yards. We have a ½ cubic yard scoop on our loader. All other materials are in baskets or super sacks. Those are all weighed and sold by their tonnage weight.
