    DISPONET activities are planned in consultation with advanced waste disposal programmes. Topics considered cover the full scope of disposal issues and respect different national approaches in the management of low and intermediate level waste. For further information or questions please contact [email protected] Low-level waste (LLW) is nuclear waste that does not fit into the categorical definitions for intermediate-level waste (ILW), high-level waste (HLW), spent nuclear fuel (SNF), transuranic waste (TRU), or certain byproduct materials known as 11e(2) wastes, such as uranium mill essence, it is a definition by exclusion, and LLW is that category of radioactive .

    Low-level radioactive waste is defined as any radioactive waste that does not belong in any of the above categories. As a result, low-level waste is a very broad category containing many different types of waste and a wide range of radioactive content.

      Low-level radioactive waste (LLW) A general term for a wide range of items that have become contaminated with radioactive material or have become radioactive through exposure to neutron radiation. A variety of industries, hospitals and medical institutions, educational and research institutions, private or government laboratories, and nuclear fuel .   The Low-level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of gave the states responsibility for the disposal of their low-level radioactive waste. The Act encouraged the states to enter into compacts that would allow them to dispose of waste at a common disposal facility. Most states have entered into compacts; however, only one new disposal.

D. Jackson, S. Mobbs, in Radioactive Waste Management and Contaminated Site Clean-Up, Waste classification. Radioactive wastes in the UK are categorised into low level waste (LLW), intermediate level waste (ILW) and high level waste (HLW) (Defra et al., ).In addition, some materials and wastes are defined as out of scope or exempt from .Some generators of low-level radioactive waste are large and sophisticated enough to carry out the proper management of LLRW by using their own in-house resources.

They have the ability to assess, develop, and implement a proper plan internally.Waste characterization is the determination of the radiological, chemical and physical properties of waste to establish the need for treatment, handling, processing, storage, or disposal of radioactive materials.

Typically, characterization is helpful in assessing what must be done to meet the requirements regarding transportation and disposal of radioactive waste.
