Compaction

Perma-Fix offers compaction services. Incoming waste is taken to a separate, ventilated room to be sorted for compliance and segregated for volume reduction. Once non-compliant materials are removed, the remaining waste is in-barrel compacted. Once the drums are verified compliant, they are sent to our compactor and crushed. The resulting pucks may be placed in drum overpacks or boxes, surrounded with fill materials such as thermal process residue or soils, and prepped for shipment to disposal. These fill materials help increase density in the disposal container and minimize the amount of waste to disposal. Final disposal can be at any of the disposal facilities that accept LLW for disposal.
