WIPP: 500 shipments from Idaho National Laboratory since reopening

The 500th shipment of TRU waste from INL was processed at the Laboratory’s Radioactive Waste Management Complex Advanced Mixed Waste Treatment project, and was sent 1,100 miles to the WIPP site, about 33 miles east of Carlsbad.

It arrived at WIPP and was safely disposed of, said Donavan Mager, spokesman for Nuclear Waste Partnership – the contractor that oversees WIPP operations.
