Solid radioactive waste that is ineligible for decay-in-storage, liquid waste that does not meet the sewer disposal limits, and waste containing other regulated material such as hazardous or biohazardous waste and sharps must be transferred offsite to an authorized recipient. The waste must be packaged in proper shipping containers and labeled prior to shipment. The Authorized User must notify the RSO when a shipment is ready to be removed from a regulated area and complete the disposal record form. The shipment must include the NRC manifest form, which will also be returned and signed upon disposal. The RSO will be responsible for disposal records of all off-site shipments.
