How to Send Waste

Waste Control Specialists strives to make this process as easy as possible for our customers. WCS has developed a Quality Assurance Plan which was written to establish the quality assurance requirements and management controls applicable to quality affecting activities performed by WCS and WCS contractors. A generator certification packet must be submitted to WCS by the generator. A generator site audit may be required also.

In order to ship waste for disposal at the Low-level Radioactive Waste Compact in Andrews, Texas, Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ), Texas Compact Commission (TCC), Department of State and Health Services (DSHS), and WCS require documentation to be submitted prior to shipping. WCS will work side by side with our customers to ensure that the required material will be completed and submitted properly.

Listed are the steps that require completion in order to ship waste to WCS.
