High-level radioactive waste management concerns how radioactive materials created during production of nuclear power and nuclear weapons are dealt with. Radioactive waste contains a mixture of short-lived and long-lived nuclides, as well as non-radioactive nuclides.

There was reported s tonnes of high-level nuclear waste stored in the USA in   The Low-level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of gave the states responsibility for the disposal of their low-level radioactive waste.

The Act encouraged the states to enter into compacts that would allow them to dispose of waste at a common disposal facility. Most states have entered into compacts; however, only one new disposal.

Appendix D Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management and Disposition: Background Information. The Department of Energy’s Office of Environmental Management (DOE) is responsible for the cleanup of sites used by the federal government for nuclear weapons development and nuclear energy research.

Waste characterization is the determination of the radiological, chemical and physical properties of waste to establish the need for treatment, handling, processing, storage, or disposal of radioactive materials. Typically, characterization is helpful in assessing what must be done to meet the requirements regarding transportation and disposal of radioactive waste.

Low-level waste includes items that have become contaminated with radioactive material or have become radioactive through exposure to neutron radiation.

This waste typically consists of contaminated protective shoe covers and clothing, wiping rags, mops, filters, reactor water treatment residues, equipments and tools, luminous dials, medical. The reports Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities () and The Cost of High-Level Waste Disposal in Geological Repositories () are two examples.

This new study on the costs of low-level radioactive waste repositories complements these previous studies, and completes the assessment of the costs of radioactive waste management. Commercial Low Level Radioactive Waste Disposal A license for the receipt and disposal of low-level radioactive waste is issued to US Ecology by the Waste Management Section.

An on-site inspector checks each shipment of waste arriving at the disposal facility. The Act made each state responsible for disposal of its own low-level radioactive waste and encouraged the formation of compacts between states to manage low-level radioactive waste on a regional basis.

Before Washington State could comply with the Act, the citizens of Washington approved Initiative on November 4, The New York State Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management Act (Chapter of the Laws of ) requires low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) generators in New York State to submit annual reports regarding such waste to NYSERDA.

If your facility generated, stored (on- or off-site) or disposed LLRW, you are probably required to submit a report. Low Level Radioactive Waste. Low-level radioactive waste (LLW) is radioactively contaminated industrial or research waste such as paper, rags, plastic bags, protective clothing, cardboard, packaging material, organic fluids, and water-treatment residues.

It is waste that does not fall into any of the three categories previously discussed.
