       I had a similar problem 25 years ago involving 200 curies of Co-60 
in an experimental device which I designed and built.  I had a complete set 
of drawings, but I did not try to remove the sources.
       I got a type B shipping container from Chem Nuclear Systems, loaded 
the device, mixed and poured in concrete and shipped for disposal.
       This is expensive and does not help you much.
Good luck,
Ddon Rhodes
