I have two old lead film bags designed to protect film from airport x-rays. Obviously pre-9/11. Are they of any use to anyone? One is a very nice Brookstone nylon bag about 9" x 7" with a velcro closure flap. The other is a Filmshield brand about 6" x 12".
If anyone wants them, you can have them for the cost of shipping. If not, any suggestions on disposal without putting the lead into a landfill?

Due to the huge numbers of old lead-acid car batteries, there's actually a pretty good network of lead recyclers in the U.S.
Check this list for companies that recycle lead in and around Maryland.

Unfortunately today, if airport scanners find a barrier they will increase their power usually destroying the film.
Have a great time :-)
