thorium reactors can be used to get rid of the waste...

...we've created using uranium reactors. They need a small amount of uranium or plutonium to start up. They will burn this waste up over time, as reactors have to be started and stopped. The thorium reactor is much more efficient and will reduce our nuclear waste by a factor of several hundreds.
