Low level nuclear waste dumped in unregulated landfills in Tennessee

Families for a Clean Tennessee wants to ends this noxious practice.

In California, lawmakers secretly talk about the “Tennessee Loophole” which allows nuclear waste to be dumped in ordinary Tennessee landfills. Unbelievable? Unfortunately, it’s a sad fact and it is done through a process known as Bulk Survey for Release (BSFR).

BSFR begins by reclassifying nuclear waste and ends by dumping this radioactive material in Tennessee landfills that are not regulated, controlled or designed for radioactivity. It’s like dumping Drano in a child’s toy box!
