Hi Chris, I just saw some of these last week.  They look pretty rugged, I believe the "shielding" is a bismuth oxide.  They seem to have very good backing through Siemens.

I do not know about the actions to be taken for lead garment disposal, but it seems that many countries have prohibited landfill disposal of lead.
