In Weldon Spring, Missouri, there is a strange, grey, windblasted seven-storey pile of rocks. It's the Weldon Spring Site: a nuclear and toxic waste dump on the site of an old uranium processing factory. And you can walk on it: it's technically a tourist attraction. That was going to be the whole of my video... and then I did some more research.

A community near St. Louis, Missouri claims that a rise in the incidence of cancers in the area is related to exposure to nuclear waste dating back to the Manhattan Project. Residents complain that the US government has been slow in studying the effect of radioactive residues on the populace. Marina Portnaya reports.

There is growing fear in a suburban St. Louis community over a local landfill containing nuclear waste left over from the Cold War. The radioactive material was dumped there illegally in the 1970s. There's also a "hot spot" burning underground in a second landfill, just three football fields away. Vinita Nair reports from the West Lake landfill in Bridgeton, Missouri.
Nuclear waste illegally dumped in a Missouri landfill during the 1970s may be under threat from an underground fire that's been burning at the landfill for five years. Worried residents are fired up as well. Vinita Nair has the story.
The CDC has opened an investigation in North St. Louis County, where a total of twelve sites have been found to have low levels of radiological contamination. Vanita Nair reports residents in the area believe the hot spots are making them sick.
"Spy Drones Expose Smithfield Foods Factory Farms": SINCE 2012, "Speciesism: The Movie" director Mark Devries has been secretly using spy drones to investigate and expose the environmental devastation caused by factory farms. In this video, the drones capture shocking aerial footage of several massive facilities that supply pigs for Smithfield Foods. Find out more at http://FactoryFarmDrones.com
The dangerous effects of what could happen if an underground fire at the Bridgeton landfill ever reaches radioactive waste at an adjoining landfill in Bridgeton, Missouri, and EPA involvement and negligent response to the West Lake Landfill are uncovered with Dawn Chapman in this Antidote interview highlight hosted by Michael Parker.

On Tuesday the U.S. government said it was delaying indefinitely its proposal for how to clean up or seal off radioactive soil buried in a St. Louis-area landfill adjacent to another waste site. An underground fire has been smoldering there for several years. The postponement by the Environmental Protection Agency drew an outcry from local officials angry at the potential public health hazard posed by the site. The agency cited lags in receiving "technical documents" needed to formulate its plan. By the end of this year, a remediation plan for the West Lake Landfill in Bridgeton, Missouri, about 20 miles northeast of St. Louis, had been expected from the EPA. The agency said it decided to "extend the timeline" to allow for further documentation and review by experts. No new deadline was se...

This film was widely used in hazardous waste worker safety and health training classes conducted by the EPA in the 1980s. The film shows the April 1980 US EPA initial hazardous waste site investigation at a farm ("Denny Farm") near Verona, Missouri. This was before the Superfund Law, which Congress passed later that year in response to problems like this site, Love Canal near Buffalo NY and many others. The farm had been leased by a chemical company for waste disposal and contaminated with various chemicals, including dioxin. The worker health and safety precautions taken by the EPA investigating team would later become incorporated into OSHA's Hazardous Waste Operations and Emergency Response Standard in 1986. For more information on this site, read the 1980 EPA Technical Study and Remedi...
http://undergroundworldnews.com A Missouri couple says their home is contaminated with dangerously high levels of radioactive waste left over from the US government’s second world war-era atomic weapons program. In a lawsuit filed in the St Louis County circuit court on Tuesday, Robbin and Mike Dailey of Bridgeton say dust samples collected from their kitchen and basement were found to contain the radioactive element thorium-230 at levels about 200 times higher than normal “background” levels. In a move they hope shines a light on the continuing impact of the country’s early nuclear weapons program on their midwestern city, the Daileys named nine companies in their lawsuit that they say are responsible for decades of negligence that led to the contamination of their property. Atomic Cit...
This weekend, we joined the 24th Annual Project Blue River Rescue in Kansas City. Our site was on the Missouri River downstream of where the Blue River joins it, a place we call the "Trash Trap" at mile 350.9. You're not gonna believe it until you see it. Please....pick up trash before it gets into our rivers and streams. It's so much easier there. We worked with the Student Environmental Coalition at UMKC to remove 1.4 tons of junk from this area in one day. The hard way. www.riverrelief.org
Visiting the Weldon Spring Site & Interpretive Center and the August Busch Memorial Conservation Area in Saint Charles county. I explore a radioactive waste containment cell and go in search of WWII era bunkers that were built for the storage of TNT. 100 bunkers were built in this area.

Nuclear waste poses a serious threat to public health if it's not stored in a safe place. John Oliver explains why the United States desperately needs to build a metaphorical toilet for all that waste. Connect with Last Week Tonight online...

Nuclear technologies benefit people everywhere. Radioactive sources are used to sterilize food and medical instruments, to develop improved crops and to diagnose and treat patients. Research reactors are used in science and for producing radioisotopes for medical use and 30 countries use nuclear power for energy production. These various uses of nuclear technologies generate waste like many other processes. To ensure that it poses no risk to people or the environment now and in the future all countries using nuclear technologies have the responsibility to manage radioactive waste safely and securely.

1.48 million cubic yards of low-level radioactive waste and chemical waste sit underneath a mound that you can walk on top of.....if you aren't afraid to. http://dimension144.com/ChapterTWO/nuclear-waste-adventure-trail-weldon-spring-missouri/ Photos and video from Tony Hulse Music Audio by Jahzzar
The Volunteer Programs Division of Columbia's Community Development Department offered up a learning opportunity for students at the 2017 Missouri Scholars Academy (MSA). It took 20 volunteers from MSA a little over and hour to retrieve the recyclables from the trash. The containers retrieved from City Hall fill 3 large trash bags. A waste audit is a physical analysis of a facilities waste stream. It identifies waste diversion opportunities and provides a baseline for change. It is an excellent opportunity for hands on learning about where trash goes once it is dispose of, why recycling and composting are important, and what percentage of their trash could be diverted from the landfill. It is an eyeopening experience for everyone who participates, making a huge impact and is an effective...
:) It seems they writhe, invisage a senseless waste of time... its seem they think of themsleves better when they hide.. behind the sense of fear but fear dont fool the blind... I could believe, but i'd only waste my time/mind... i'd only waste my time/mind x 4
