Disposal of Contaminated Waste

Radiation-contaminated waste, wood chips and soil with sand are stored in a remote part of Odaka, which was inside the 12.4 mile nuclear no-entry zone until April 2012. This is part of the decontamination effort to make it possible for residents to return to Odaka, though it is not known how many are willing to come back.
