Sellafield’s Pile Fuel Storage Pond has passed an important point in its clean-up journey with the removal of 300 tonnes of solid waste from the legacy pond. When retrieval operations in the Pile Fuel Storage Pond began in 2012 there was an estimated 750 tonnes of bulky waste items to remove, including redundant equipment and discarded skips.

There are now 97 skips remaining, which along with the other bulky waste should be fully removed and in safe interim storage by 2024.
