Radioactive Waste Disposal: Low-Level Radioactive Waste Defines "low-level radioactive waste" and summarizes the responsibilities of various federal and state agencies with respect to its disposal. Low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) is defined in the law by what it is not. Participants explored the key physical, chemical, and radiological characteristics of low-level waste that govern its safe and secure management and disposal in aggregate and in individual waste streams, and how key characteristics of low level waste are incorporated into standards, orders, and regulations that govern the management and. In essence, it is a definition by exclusion, and LLW is that category of radioactive wastes that do not fit into the other categories. If LLW is mixed with hazardous wastes, then it has a special status as Mixed Low-Level Waste (MLLW) and must satisfy treatment, storage, and disposal regulations both as LLW and as hazardous waste. North Carolina regulations for the disposal of LLRW are found at 15A NC ADMIN CODE In , upon the request of the National Governor’s Association for a State-based solution to the problem of safely disposing of the nation’s LLRW, Congress passed the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Act, Pub.
