Lead recycling and scrap lead price determination
It is relatively easy to recycle lead because of its low melting point and the materials characteristics. When lead is melted, contaminations become visible and can be removed. Lead can be recycled for 100%, although there is some loss because of dissipative use in gasoline, paints, crystal glass, pvc, etc. If lead is absorbed into the blood it can be a danger to people, which is a disadvantage. Several articles about this subject have been published in the press recently. Currently, former (old) lead pipes are being replaced by pipes made of different material in many municipalities. Plumbing and maintenance companies working for these replacement projects are welcome to bring their scrap lead to Geelhoed.
