Hazardous Waste Management

Shaw successfully manages wastes of all types, including radioactive, mixed, hazardous and sanitary. We have worked closely with federal, state and local regulators to ensure safety and compliance in the handling, processing, treating, transporting and disposal of these wastes.

Shaw has dispositioned millions of tons of radioactive wastes from several U.S. Department of Energy nuclear weapons sites. We also have decontaminated, decommissioned and demolished one of the largest nuclear reactors operated by a public utility.

Waste management services include the following:

  • Project planning and initial assessments through final waste disposition of radioactive, mixed and hazardous waste
  • Investigation, recovery and disposal of munitions and explosives of concern
  • Decontamination and decommissioning of large, highly contaminated facilities, including eight commercial nuclear reactors and seven research reactors
  • Waste minimization and pollution prevention programs
