United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission - Protecting People and the Environment

Informational Materials on High-Level Waste Disposal

Several posters and information sheets are available. Some posters are two-sided and address a single topic or idea. One side of these posters graphically displays the information. The other side provides additional written information on the topic. These posters were originally printed on 11 x 17 paper; thus printing the files to most printers may cause the readability of the poster to be reduced. Other posters are only one-sided and consist of a graphic image.
