WIPP site in carlsbad new mexico-

The nation’s first and only deep geologic repository for the disposal of defense-related transuranic (TRU) radioactive waste has safely operated for more than 10 years. The U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) began disposal operations March 26, 1999 and today serves as an international model for radioactive waste management.
yucca mountain is old hat. nuclear waste buried half a mile deep in 250 million year old salt beds is much safer.
