Currently, nuclear waste is put into interim storage where it has to sit for 30-40 years for its radioactivity and heat production to decline. After this time it is still hazardous and should be stored somewhere permanently. Permanent solutions are more complicated, and include dry cask storage containers, burying near the Earth’s surface (for the less-radioactive waste), and utilizing a permanent storage site at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.
