Proper Collection (continued)

  • How to properly package liquid waste:


    • 1. Use plastic 3.5- and 5-gallon pails, available through the UW. Contact the RSO for information.

      2. Pails should be labeled “radioactive,” and filled only half-full with diatomaceous earth, an absorbent.

      3. Liquid may be added until no more will “soak in.”

      4. Fill remaining half volume with diatomaceous earth. Do not add more liquid!
