How long does nuclear waste last in the ground?

    This depends on whether the nuclear waste is low level waste, or high level waste. Low level nuclear waste will last between 10 and 50 years, depending on its half life, before it is rendered “safe.” However, High level can last as long as 100,000 years, or perhaps longer, depending on its half life.

    I hope this helped!
