Thanks for that reference Jim. My information came directly from telephonic 
communications yesterday with the  NRC Material Licensing
office in Lisle IL, and also from our state office of materials licensing.

To quote them both:

"Exempt is Exempt, we *ENCOURAGE* responsible disposal of exempt quantity 
sealed sources but don't mandate it. Individual institutions are free to 
require their own rules and regulation that exceed ours, but are not 
required to do so"
