Yes. You're right to some degree.

With regards to the Hanford single shell tanks, we are not dealing with pellets of uranium that were once used in reactors. The "waste" is mainly cesium and strontium inside the tanks that could be classified as "nuclear". (loose terminology I know but that is how we refer to it within projects)

Very informative and well laid out. I have always been a nerd for Thorium reactors. I do believe that a lot of the fuel that is produced for Energy Northwest (last running nuke plant on the Hanford reserve) uses recycled uranium. It still generates waste to reprocess it but much less than when they were just pumping it out in the 40's, 50's and 60's.
