    Abstract

    In the fifteen years since the fission process began generating highly radioactive isotopes in large quantities, many methods have been utilized for radioactive waste disposal. In this same interval greater quantities of radioactive wastes have been generated and disposed to the environment or stored in interim containers at Hanford than at any other atomic installation. This experience will be discussed with the objectives of pointing out the present state of our knowledge and practice, and of indicating probable future trends.
