Best lead Recycling services with Expert Hands
Lead is a soft, white-grey metal with a low melting point. It is a neurotoxin that damages the nervous system and has been phased out of many applications. It can be recycled indefinitely without any reduction in quality, making it ideal for a circular economy. Due to lead’s resistance to corrosion, it is used as a protective sheath for underwater cables and has several uses in the construction industry, i.e. roofing. Lead is also commonly used in car batteries, x-ray equipment, radioactive material containers, and ammunition. Over half of the lead used each year comes from recycling.
Found in: car batteries, cables, hospital equipment, lifting weights, stained glass windows, heavy industrial machinery, lead pipework
