Lead recycling

Lead is classified as a hazardous waste and is highly toxic to most species. Lead can be effectively recycled for reuse in new lead based products, diverting it from landfill and using less energy than refining primary ore.

Lead is used in a number of products but only accounts for only a small part of the waste stream. However this metal is highly toxic to animals and humans and is classified as a hazardous waste. Due to it toxicity lead should not be placed in landfill where it could contaminate groundwater. Recycling lead helps protect the environment from the toxic metal and it also uses less energy than refining primary ore. About 90% of the lead scrap produced in Australia arises from lead-acid batteries in vehicles.

Lead is collected and then smelted in a furnace. It can them be formed into lead ingots of various purities, quantities, size and weight configurations for reuse in a range of products.

We’re more than waste management

A staggering 9 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s oceans each year, and land-based waste is the greatest polluter. This ocean debris affects about 700 marine species, some of which are now endangered.

To help turn the tide on plastic pollution, Wanless eco(logical) is investing in Australia’s oceans.
