Pretreatment and In-Place Treatment of Solid Waste.' In most cases, solid waste is compacted using heavy equipment after it has been placed in the landfill. The compaction should be determined to estimate the density and field capacity of the landfill. Shredding and baling of solid waste will increase its density.

Guidelines for radioactive waste management can be found in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign Radiation Safety Manual in the Solid Waste Disposal. Solid radioactive waste can be broken down into two categories: waste that contains radioisotopes with half-lives of greater than 90 days, and waste that contains radioisotopes with.

The Sheffield low-level radioactive-waste facility is located on 20 acres of rolling terrain 3 miles southwest of Sheffield, Illinois.

The shallow hydrogeologic system is composed of glacial sediments. Pennsylvania shale and mudstone bedrock isolate the regional aquifers below from the hydrogeologic system in the overlying glacial deposits.
