Minimizing Radioactive Waste
EO-18 IDENTIFY methods to minimize radioactive waste at the facility.
Because of the difficulty and cost in disposing of radioactive waste, special care should be taken
to minimize waste generated.
Methods for reducing radioactive waste generation:
N
Avoid bringing unnecessary material into areas where contamination may be present or
where they may become activated.
N
Designate an area to store contaminated tools for reuse.
N
Plan your work so that, whenever possible, construction and clean maintenance can be done
in a clean area.
N
Do not leave unnecessary tools and equipment in accelerator enclosures.
N
Reuse items.
C.
Mixed Waste
Mixed waste is waste that is classified as hazardous in accordance with the Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) and is also radioactive. There is presently no approved method to
dispose of mixed waste, and long-term storage is required. Common examples of waste
materials at accelerators are:
N
Lead (shielding, batteries, etc.).
N
PCBs.
