ADCO Services, Inc. is one of the oldest radioactive waste brokers in The United States that is a full-service radioactive waste disposal company offering long-lived low-level radioactive waste also commonly referred to as DAW (Dry Active Waste) or LLRW brokerage services, transportation, and disposal at licensed radioactive waste processing facilities ADCO partners with across The United States. ADCO's radioactive waste brokerage disposal services are offered to a variety of industries in The United States such as: hospitals and medical institutions, educational and research institutions, private and government labs, and nuclear fuel cycle facilities who all generate LLRW (Low-Level Radioactive Waste) as part of their day-to-day exposure of working with radioactive materials.
ADCO is America's radioactive waste brokerage disposal company that organizes disposal of all types of DAW / LLRW through our licensed vendor's facilities we work closely with such as: Contaminated shoe covers and clothing, rags, mops, brooms, vacuum bags and sometimes the entire vacuum, filters, and reactor water treatment residues (sludge), equipment and tools; medical tubes, swabs, hypodermic syringes, and carcasses / tissues from laboratory animals, metal, ductwork, machinery, and even building debris where any one of these items has come into contact with a radioisotope(s).
Radioactive wastes having activity concentrations of .02 uCi / gram or ml or greater are considered to be radioactive in the eyes of the U.S.N.R.C. and must be managed as a radioactive waste. Wastes such as: scintillation fluids, bulk liquids, and animal carcasses / biological waste containing H-3 and C-14 with activities greater than .05 uCi / gram or ml must also be disposed of as a radioactive waste. ADCO Services' knowledgeable staff is able to assist you with the packaging requirements of your radioactive waste streams to assure that you are in full D.O.T. and N.R.C. compliance. Our staff is fully trained in the fields of packaging requirements for DAW (LLRW), paperwork preparation (NRC 540, 541, and 542 forms), and the methods of monitoring of packages containing radioactive waste.
