Re: Lead-lined aprons



The first thought on my mind is to contact local boat/yacht
manufacturers.  They often melt lead down & use it in their keels for
weight.

X-ray technicians in medical, dental, and veterinary offices frequently
must discard worn lead-lined protective aprons.  Most probably they wind
up in a dumpster.  Does anyone know of any programs for recycling or
reusing the lead from these aprons?   Thanks very much.
