The Low-Level Waste Management site at the Nevada Test Site provides efficient disposal of radioactive wastes generated in the nuclear weapons program. Waste is trucked to the site in Department of Transportation approved containers and buried in the large trench. As it fills, the pit is covered with soil and marked on an identifying grid at the surface.
