MAPW Policy: Radioactive Waste - revised February 2012

MAPW revised its nuclear waste policy in 2012. The three-page Radioactive Waste Policy - revised February 2012 - begins by stating that reduction at source (waste minimisation) is the fundamental principle in reducing the risks of environmental contamination from nuclear waste. A detailed preamble discusses the burden of nuclear waste in Australia and the problems faced in safely disposing of it.
