Query shared folder and the size

How could I query shared folders from windows machine with size, excluding shares with $-in the share name?

Input should be servers.txt where the machine names are listed one per row.
Output should be result.txt:
\\MachineName\ShareName, local path, size
\\MachineName\ShareName, local path, size
\\MachineName\ShareName, local path, size

I can query shares from a specific computer with this:
Get-WmiObject win32_share -computerName InsertComputerNameHere  | Where {$_.name -notlike "*$"} | sort-Object -property path | ft path, name -autosize

I can query a specific folder size with this:
$colItems = (Get-ChildItem C:\temp -recurse | Measure-Object -property length -sum)
"{0:N2}" -f ($colItems.sum / 1MB) + " MB "

But I do not know how to put all this together.
