The operating of enrichment plants, nuclear power plants and reprocessing plants and the decommissioning of nuclear facilities will give rise to large volumes of waste material mostly categorized as very low level waste (VLLW). This document deals with the environmental impact of a specific landfill as a final destination for VLLW with the aim of providing technical elements for safer work practices during the operational and the monitoring phases and for public use after closure of the site. This study has been made on the basis of inventories in terms of estimated quantities and spectra of the French and Belgian VLLW for a set of scenarios which are representative of practices in a landfill and of the occupation of the site after its closure.
