INEEL Waste Shipment At WIPP

Thursday August 26 6:15 AM ET

(IDAHO FALLS) -- The Idaho National Engineering and Environmental Laboratory is getting rid of some of its transuranic nuclear waste. A second truckload of waste is now at the permanent underground dump near Carlsbad, New Mexico. It arrived there yesterday... the 23rd shipment of waste sent to WIPP. Only two of those shipments have been from Idaho but that will change in the months and years ahead when hundreds of barrels of INEEL waste are sent to New Mexico.
