Estonia

  1. Estonian Repository
    • In Estonia, near the town of Sillamäe on the shore of the Gulf of Finland there is a large waste depository.[8] In Estonia, near the town of Sillamäe on the shore of the Gulf of Finland there is a large (50 hectares) waste depository. The total radioactive waste amount there is 12 million tons and of that amount about half originates from the enrichment of uranium. An international project for the restoration of the area was completed in 2008.[9]
