I'd suggest disposing them in a Hazardous Waste Landfill.
Lead and radioactivity are not good for children and other living things.

We rid ourselves of all of our radioactive samples several years ago, but I recently located a box of lead storage containers in which (presumably) bottles of radioactive materials were stored. These are lead containers that are about the size of a can of Campbell's Soup and they have a radioactive label on the outside but are totally empty.
Can these be disposed of as nonradioactive waste?
Since they are made of lead, is there an issue with disposing of them in the normal solid waste stream?
I know that I will need to contact my local municipal solid waste office to be sure, but I'd appreciate any advice from the listserv.
