The Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is seeking additional public comment on alternatives for controlling the disposition of solid materials that originate in certain areas of NRC-licensed facilities and that may contain no or very small amounts of radioactivity resulting from licensed operations.
The solid materials under consideration include items such as furniture and ventilation ducts in buildings; metal equipment and pipes; laboratory materials such as gloves and beakers; routine trash; site fences; wood; paper; glass; concrete; and soil.
A public workshop has been scheduled for May 21 to 22 at NRC headquarters in Rockville, Md., to discuss alternative approaches addressed in earlier public sessions. The workshop will focus on the feasibility of two alternatives that would limit where solid materials can go. For an information packet and to provide comments, visit www.nrc.gov/materials.html. Written comments, due by June 30, also can be submitted to http://ruleforum.llnl.gov (select “information/comment requests”). Or contact Frank Cardile at (301) 415-6185 or email@example.com.
