The application was to dispose of no more than 26,000 metres cubed of HV-VLLW per year and if the landfill remains operational until 2031, no more that 582,000 metres cubed of HV-VLLW in total. This waste will be disposed of alongside non-radioactive waste, which is already being taken to the site. Waste Recycling Group anticipate that the majority of waste will arise from decommissioning activities at nuclear sites.
