Each apron that contains lead must be properly disposed. You can do this by contacting a disposal service who can properly discard lead material.
Hazardous-waste carriers and certain handling companies have pick-up or drop-off services for unwanted aprons.
Alternatively, all non-lead aprons can be disposed of in the regular garbage disposal.
There is no need to contact a disposal service for non-lead aprons.
