How do we clean up nuclear waste?

    Currently, most nuclear waste is stored on site by the power plants. This can be done after a complicated chemical treatment process, also performed on site. We will soon be running out of room to store the treated waste, however, which is why you hear so much about nuclear waste being an important issue. Some time ago Yucca mountain was being discussed as a storage site, but that fell through, and no viable alternative currently exists.
