QUESTION: 100 kg of lead Chromate paint for sale - 13 Apr 2007 Victoria, Australia
My friends family use to be in the fishing industry and use to place lead chromate on there boats as an antifouling paint. Since he has inherited the contents of the shed he now has 100 kg of the stuff. He naturally wants to get rid of the stuff and got a quote of 500 dollars to dispose of it. I had thought the stuff is worth something he might as well sell it rather than get a firm to dump it. My question is could he sell it so someone can make use of it?

Dear Mat Coburn,
Not a good idea, it is highly toxic there is a website called www.wasteexchange.net.au and to Email them use the form on WastePro's site the waste eXchange database provides a facility to allow communication between generators of waste and potential recyclers. We apologise for the late reply.
