Radioactive Waste

Proper Storage of Waste Containers

Waste containers must be stored in a safe, secure, and easily identifiable location within your laboratory room for OSEH personnel to inspect for completeness and transport.

It is recommended that the waste be stored in an area which will limit laboratory personnel exposure. Also, use shielding whenever possible. (Contact Radiation Safety Service at 764-6200 for recommended shielding methods).

Once waste is ready to be picked up by HMM, be sure to place LLRW Manifest in immediate proximity to the waste containers. (i.e. place manifest on top of waste containers prepared for shipment so that the manifest is in plain view).
