Touring the Streets of Jerusalem - Together

The Glow of Jerusalem

I was driving around Jerusalem and a bit suprised to see this sign.

If you haven't figured it out, the sign says "Warning! Radioactive Waste"

Which I guess is OK, because radioactive waste has to go somewhere, except it was posted next to dozens of stacked barrels probably full of the stuff, and right next to the road I was driving on.

This picture was taken at Hadassah Hospital and is obviously from their nuclear medicine treatment facilities which are among the best in the world.

While the contaminated radioactive waste from nuclear medical treatments tends to be at very low-radiation levels, I still wonder what happens to it next.
