Legacy Waste Program nearing completion at Sandia


The last scheduled shipments of remote-handled (RH) transuranic (TRU) waste left Sandia National Laboratories’ New Mexico location on Wednesday, May 2, headed directly for permanent disposal in the Department of Energy’s (DOE) Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) near Carlsbad, N.M. These shipments end Sandia’s final stage in DOE’s Legacy TRU Waste Program, which works to safely remove such waste from sites throughout the DOE complex.
