This Manual further describes the requirements and establishes specific responsibilities for implementing DOE 0Radioactive Waste Management, for the management of DOE high-level waste, transuranic waste, low-level waste, and the radioactive component of mixed waste.

The basic steps for effective management of radioactive waste are part of a global system, ranging from waste generation to final disposal are: minimization of radioactive waste.

The historic low-level radioactive waste is composed mostly of soil that has been contaminated with uranium ore or products of uranium conversion activities. Historic low-level radioactive waste contamination in the municipalities of Port Hope and Clarington, in Ontario, is being managed under the Port Hope Area Initiative.
