Additional sources of radioactive waste
There are many hospitals and industrial, educational and research establishments that produce small quantities of radioactive wastes; their sites are not shown on the map. Most of their wastes is safely disposed of with municipal, commercial or industrial wastes and is not reported in the Inventory. The small fraction of these wastes that is subject to specific regulatory controls is managed at Sellafield and Harwell and is included in the Inventory.
In addition, there is the national LLW disposal facility (the LLWR) that is located near the village of Drigg, four miles south of Sellafield (not shown on map). There are also several small sources of radioactive waste that cannot be allocated to a specific geographical location.
