NSSI is permitted for the storage of up to 4000 drums of waste materials including wastes containing radioactive material. For long lived radioactive materials, NSSI can provide storage pending transport to a land disposal site or return to a licensed generator. For short lived radioactive material, storage can be provided for decay of the radionuclide. The short lived decayed waste is surveyed and transferred to off-site permitted disposal facilities for final disposal by incineration or land disposal.
NSSI accepts a full spectrum of radionuclide sources for such consolidation and can assist generators with transport containers and transportation. With special arrangements, NSSI can accept leaking sealed sources and can provide source encapsulation where special form documentation is required.
