Radioactive Waste Disposal
If you are an authorized user of radioactive materials, you will have quantities of liquid or solid waste to dispose. Please fill out the radioactive waste disposal form and make two copies of it. Send the original to the EHS office (mail stop 2030, email firstname.lastname@example.org), attention RSO. Attach one copy to the container, and keep one in your records.
The radiation safety officer collects certain quantities of radioactive waste and hires a waste disposal broker to transport the waste to a waste treatment facility and finally to a final disposal facility.
