Lead is a poison in any form. It is categorized as one of the "heavy metals" and, when disposed of, it must always be managed as a hazardous waste. Too often lead contaminated debris is left at the job site for the property owner to dispose of—which means it gets dumped in the trash.
The correct way to dispose of lead contaminated debris (paint debris, flakes, dust, plumbing scrap, etc.) is to carefully gather it into a tightly sealed container. Clean up should be done with a HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air Filter) vacuum cleaner to ensure a thorough pickup is done without releasing more lead particulates into the air. Waste containers should be properly labeled as containing lead contaminated material and disposed of as hazardous waste.
