    LSA Boxes

    • LSA boxes can be purchased through the UW purchasing system. Contact Radiation Safety for more information.

    • An LSA box holds 2.25 cubic feet of waste.

    • Seventy percent of UW radioactive waste is dry waste.

    • LSA boxes are cardboard. Once received at the RSO they are surveyed and may be recycled if still in good condition and not contaminated.

    • Only low activity material may be placed in these boxes. Sealed sources and high activity materials are not allowed in LSA waste.
