Lead pipes, sinks, and faucets can be found in older homes throughout Western New York. They joined waterlines to a private and residential property in the past. Since lead is a potentially toxic metal, there has been a surge in removing and replacing lead pipes. When pipes are removed, the best way to discard the scraps is recycling.
Lead is one of the most effectively recycled materials in the world. It can be recycled indefinitely without any reduction in quality. Today, more lead is produced by recycling than is mined. Lead is still used for car batteries, pigments, ammunition, and radiation protection.
We can take all forms of scrap lead, cable strips, reclaimed shot as well as manufacturing cut-offs.
