Should you live in a non-refurbished pre-1970’s house, the chances are water pipes, roof flashings and box gutters are of lead. Although lead has fallen out of favour due to its toxicity in water, it continues to be used in many other aspects of the commercial and building industries.
If you are involved in the construction industry, demolition or refurbishment of old domestic and commercial properties the chances are you regularly come into contact with lead products; usually replacing them. No matter how small, don’t throw that piece of lead in the skip. You can sell used lead, or sell lead containing items, for good money.
Check prices to sell used lead. If you live in the Bristol area and want to sell lead, give the Manor Scrap Company a ring. With over 40 years in the industry, they lead Bristol with the most competitive prices for buying lead in the region. Although the price per kilogram appears low, lead is a very heavy metal, second only to gold, so you don’t need a lot to make up a few kilograms.
It has been rumoured that China is actively seeking to purchase lead from around the world. With this being a strong possibility, the only direction for the value of scrap lead, is up.
