Excellent compilation of background information opposing Bush’s Global Nuclear Energy Partnership (GNEP) and a relapse into commercial high-level radioactive waste reprocessing.

Alliance for Nuclear Accountability’s web page has lots of info on DOE trying to abandon HLRW in South Carolina and Idaho (and maybe someday Washington and New York).

IEER - have done work on La Hague, France and Sellafield, UK (Cumbrians Opposed to a Radioactive Environement, for example).

NIRS report “Out of Control --- On Purpose” revealed that at least 4 or 5 regular trash landfills in Tennessee are accepting radioactive wastes. Residents in the communities near the Middle Point BFI Allied solid waste landfill in Murfreesboro, Rutherford County, TN have set up a website, are petitioning the state to stop sending nuclear waste to their landfill, and appear to have gotten a moratorium on the dumping until a study is completed. Other communities around the other landfills are also raising concerns. The landfills are Middle Point in Murfreesboro, Carter’s Valley in Church Hill, Chestnut Ridge in Heiskell and North and South Shelby landfills near Memphis. (June 15, 2007)
