Flats Waste To Move - (JEFFERSON COUNTY) -- Shipments of nuclear waste will start leaving Rocky Flats in mid-June. That's according to U-S Energy Secretary Bill Richardson. It could take up to two-thousand truckloads to move the waste to a burial site in New Mexico. The target date to finish the Flats cleanup is in 2006. Richardson also promised that outlying areas of the site will be cleaned and set aside as open space.
