Hi and Thanks in advance,


I've got some old pieces of damaged stained glass panels, I think the panels themselves are beyond repair but I'd like to recycle the glass - I'd appreciate any (safety) advice regarding removing the glass from the lead and cleaning it up.

If you can, do it outside.


Keep the panel wet, saturated, this keeps the lead dust down and in a mud. Keep in mind that when the mud dries it becomes airborne and that is when the lead is dangerous. The dust is absorbed in your mucous membrane, eyes, nose, mouth...


Work clean and smart.


I would recommend surfing around on google and reading up too.


The lead is recyclable as well!
