Lead is an easily recyclable material, and is also the metal that is recycled the most. Most of the lead recycled comes from batteries, since the scrap is considered hazardous waste. Other lead scrap can come from cables used in telephone wires, dross, pipes, sheet-metal, and automobile weights. About half of the world’s lead production comes from recycled materials. It is only expected to increase in the future. Recycling lead even bests lead mining.
In an effort to carry out green, sustainable business practices and keeping a healthy environment, all while following government regulations, recycling is essential in today’s world. Disposing of metals that have potentially high negative impacts on our natural environments and personal health is a top priority.
Mindful recovery, reuse, or recycling is crucial to a business when dealing in lead and other metals. Lead can be easily repurposed for other things, even years or centuries after it was first used, so the recycling of its scraps results in less waste and consumption of resources in the production of the lead itself. Therefore, participating in and maintaining conscious recycling and/or disposal of materials is a matter of finding cost effective methods that benefit everyone.
