D. Jackson, S. Mobbs, in Radioactive Waste Management and Contaminated Site Clean-Up, Waste classification. Radioactive wastes in the UK are categorised into low level waste (LLW), intermediate level waste (ILW) and high level waste (HLW) (Defra et al., ).In addition, some materials and wastes are defined as out of scope or exempt from.

Some generators of low-level radioactive waste are large and sophisticated enough to carry out the proper management of LLRW by using their own in-house resources. They have the ability to assess, develop, and implement a proper plan internally.

Waste characterization is the determination of the radiological, chemical and physical properties of waste to establish the need for treatment, handling, processing, storage, or disposal of radioactive materials.

Typically, characterization is helpful in assessing what must be done to meet the requirements regarding transportation and disposal of radioactive waste. Protecting People and Environment.
