Nuclear Waste Services brings together the UK’s leading nuclear waste management capabilities.
NWS have integrated the expertise of Low Level Waste Repository (LLWR), Radioactive Waste Management (RWM), and the Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) group’s Integrated Waste Management Programme (IWMP). This creates an organisation focused on the management of the UK’s nuclear waste, safely and securely for generations to come.
NWS are part of the NDA group, which is undertaking the biggest clean-up project in Europe over many decades. Nuclear Waste Services is integral to this environmental clean-up mission, as they work to provide permanent answers to the country’s nuclear waste. The UK has been producing and managing radioactive waste on an industrial scale since the 1940s. However, today’s approach and capabilities for waste management need to adapt to keep pace with NDA’s decommissioning ambitions. This includes its commitment to recycle 50% of waste from decommissioning and reduce secondary waste by around 70% by 2030.
Coming together as a single business provides an integrated way of tackling waste of the past, while offering more sustainable and efficient services to waste producers, now and in the future.
NWS is a great place to work where everybody is action orientated, ambitious, collaborative and acts with integrity. It combines the talent of their people and gives them an environment in which to thrive. Not only is this be good for their people, but also allows Nuclear Waste Services to grow its capability even further. NWS is driven by doing the right thing for their people, customers, partners, and the communities where they operate to ensure all their operations are safe and secure.
