America’s most sophisticated nuclear waste facility “WIPP” built for deadly transuranic (plutonium, americium, etc.) remains closed due to this, which ejected plutonium and americium into the outer environment, too. WIPP is not for commercial nuclear waste.

WCS Commercial Nuclear Waste Burial (also taking WIPP government waste “temporarily”). Nuclear waste is also being buried in the UK, France, and planned for Canada. This waste legally leaches deadly radiation into groundwater. It can blow-up, catch afire, like WIPP. The high cost of this cheaply constructed dangerous solution is eye-watering, too. While the above dumps are not for spent nuclear fuel, they contain the same deadly radionuclides (e.g. plutonium, americium, cesium).
