Now you are talking about nuclear waste when we were speaking of spent nuclear fuel?
Low level nuclear waste wont get you sick or kill you. I used to work at a nuclear power plant pack 4x4x8 ft metal boxes with 2500 lbs of low level nuclear waste. It was to be buried at hanford washington.
I wore a paper suit and sometimes used a respirator if I was using a grinder to cut stuff up.
Sadly, all that low level radioactive waste could of been recycled and used in another reactor. Too many regulations though. Bad regulations.
What in the hell makes you think that some of the nuclear waste they are dumping isn't spent fuel rods. If it is radioactive, they have probably dumped it.
