Spent uranium fuel is an example of a highly radioactive waste that contains many radionuclides. Generators of this waste include commercial nuclear plants that produce electricity, nuclear waste reprocessing facilities, and nuclear weapons facilities. These wastes are highly regulated and r­ igorously managed; there are strict licensing requirements for the storage of spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste (10 CFR part 72). Due to the inherent hazards, disposal of high-level wastes is fraught with controversy.

Government incentives and mandates, legislated recycling targets, public support, and concern for the “bottom line” (via reducing waste removal and disposal costs) have all contributed to the growing interest and participation in integrated waste management. S. EPA 2011). The percentage recycled was up markedly, compared with 16% in 1990 and 10% in 1980. Over 9000 curbside recycling programs were active in the United States in 2010, and thousands of yard waste composting programs were reported.

Some are permitted for disposal in a subtitle D sanitary landfill. In France, low-level wastes are stored in heavily reinforced concrete vaults (Tammemagi 1999). , coal, metals) from the subsurface. Mine waste also includes the tailings or spoils produced during the processing of minerals, such as by smelting operations. In addition, heap wastes are produced when metals such as gold, silver, or copper are recovered from piles of low-grade waste rock or tailings by spraying with acid or cyanide solutions.
