I don’t know about recycling, but this is a quote from the EU commission’s website.
“Progress has been made in safely disposing of very low level and low level waste in the EU, and so far Finland, France and Sweden have selected sites for the deep geological disposal of intermediate and high level waste from civilian facilities. It is likely that they will open the first repositories for these kinds of waste between 2022 and 2030.”
The Swedish site is only 100 miles from here, in Östhammar. Investigations have been going on since 2011 and high level waste is supposed to be inclosed in copper capsules and buried deep down in the granite bedrock.
What’s delaying the decision is that the local communal authority has veto. A local referendum was going to take place earlier this year but was postponed.
