Pay careful attention to the following instructions for the disposal of radioactive waste, both liquid and solid.
Liquid radioactive waste
- Liquid radioactive waste is best disposed of via the sewer system. Such waste may only be disposed of via flushing sinks connected to approved radioactive drains provided for this purpose.
- Ensure that the activity per flush is below the dilution concentration limit for each radionuclide.
- Organic solvents are not to be disposed of via flushing sinks.
Ensure all wastes are labelled clearly and correctly.
