About Lead


Metallic lead uses and history dates all the way back to 6400 BCE when it was discovered in what is now modern-day Turkey. This proves how durable and erosion resistant it can be. Lead is a chemical element in the group carbon. It is a soft, malleable poor metal. It is also considered as one of the most hazardous to dispose of. If disposed of incorrectly lead can cause neurological, reproductive, and gastrointestinal disorders in humans and animals. Children are the most affected. It is always important to wear gloves when handling lead. So, please dispose of properly by bringing here for your lead recycling. Better yet, give us a call at Elliott Scrap Metal waste to discuss disposal methods, our FREE WEIGH AND PAY service, our map and rates for our fleet of trucks on London streets every day picking up metal recycling products. We also serve all of Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and surrey, doing free collection with a large quantity




It can be re-melted many times and processed enough to remove impurities. Secondary lead is the finished product. 85% of lead used can eventually be recycled. It can be found in a number of things from paint, solders, pipes, batteries and even cosmetics. The total production of recycled lead around the world is rising. At least, 50% of lead used is from recycled or re-used material. Steel and iron industries recycle lead as well. The more recycled then obviously the more lead can be reused to help save on energy and cost efficiency.


 Lead battery scrap if disposed improperly is a hazardous waste which can create heavy environmental and health problems. Careful recycling of this mineral is essential and cost-effective in comparison to cost of treatment and disposal. Recycling lead from scrap results in reduced solid waste, utilization of fewer energy resources and will lessen the demand of the ore production needed. Lead can very easily be recycled with us at Elliott Metal Waste Management.

 The major consumption of lead is for the battery industry; which has an excellent reputation for the collection and returning of scrap batteries. Utilizing the power that is stored in the lead-acid batteries, the industry is the powerhouse in being extremely useful and cost effective. Using other battery types in place of a lead battery would be much more expensive, and you would need a bigger size to provide the same amount of power that you need to start a vehicle. There are other products that are used in smaller amounts that are suitable for recycling and may be returned to scrap yards. Scrap lead collected from building sites, homes and commercial businesses, we then recycle the lead and can pay you for the lead.

  These are just some of the everyday items that contain lead that we take here at Elliott Metal Waste: Wheel weight's on tires, cables, battery scrap and plates, racks, and relays. These are all recyclable items. Lead radiation shields that are often used in a hospital setting and have to be cleaned and stripped of other metals can be recycled here too. We hope you have learned something new on lead, its benefits and some of the products you can recycle. We encourage you to handle lead properly when working with or scrapping it. The benefits of recycling are endless. Please check out our site and see what else there is for you to learn about recycling.
