Using our cost-effective, streamlined waste factory approach, UCOR ensures that we safely and properly dispose of the waste we manage in a manner that meets federal and state criteria. Much of our waste comes from the demolition activities we conduct as we clean up the Oak Ridge Reservation. We also process legacy transuranic waste from the Oak Ridge Reservation.
The waste operations teams work to reuse or recycle waste whenever possible. However, if reuse/recycling is not appropriate, we dispose of waste at the onsite facilities we manage. Only a small percentage of waste is shipped offsite for disposition.
