How about recycling radioactive materials back into the lower mantle of the Earth?

Good luck drilling down 500 miles.

Why not just dump all nuclear waste into active volcanos and let the liquid magma consume it?

Umm, where do I start? Just think about that idea for a minute.

What could possible go wrong. Stope using Uranium as a fuel, that'd be a good start. Thorium a much better option.

Nuclear waste should be divided up and sent home with the major decision-makers in utilities which inflicted this on us.

We are now seeing the tip of the iceberg which is world-wide contamination from our Faustian bargain with things nuclear. Following generations, if any, will curse us and ask why we could be so short-sighted and stupid.

The core of the Earth is naturally radioactive. How about recycling radioactive materials back into the lower mantle of the Earth?

Of course the “safest” place to bury your waste is near the border with another country (Germany in this case). :))))

It wouldn't be much different than disposing of radioactive water into the sea. And cheaper!
