What would you like to Recycle?

Lead

Lead
You might not have a large amount of this non-ferrous metal in your possession, but that pile of lead sinkers in your unused fishing tackle might actually be worth something.

How do I go green?

Reduce

Some items you buy may contain lead, but can be hard to identify them easily. Trying to reduce the amount of lead you buy is not an easy step, but with a little research, you can identify products or brands using large quantities of lead and avoid them.

Reuse

Bring any products containing lead to a metal recycling facility to be recycled.

Recycle

Some metal recycling facilities listed below will pay for many non-ferrous metals (metals that don’t contain iron, so they aren’t magnetic).  Call to find out the rates.

  • The Environmental Story

    Take any lead and other valuable metals to a metal recycling facility. Lead is much more scarce than a metal such as iron, and is thus a sought after product.

    Did You Know?

    Any kind of metal is banned from the garbage and must be recycled.
