Radwaste disposal in Oz


I did not see Stuart Prosser's posting, but there are facilities for
radwaste disposal in Australia. In Western Australia, we have the only
approved depository for radioactive waste at Mount Walton in the Eastern
Goldfields region. It is, however, restricted to waste produced in WA.
Distance from the other States would probably cause transportation and
political problems.

For medical wastes, I believe that the Eastern States use both incinerators
and landfill.
