Texas site begins taking federal nuclear waste

A truck carries the first two containers of low-level radioactive waste from Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, inside the grounds of a federal disposal site Thursday, June 6, 2013, near Andrews, Texas, as it begins a short trip down to where they were placed into a reinforced 8-inch-thick concrete container and will remain forever. Officials from the Dallas-based company, the Department of Energy, New Mexico and Texas cut the ribbon to open the site a short time before the two containers were placed in the more than 9-foot-deep container.
