September 4, 2013 - 12:00pm


Cincinnati - The Department of Energy (DOE) today awarded a task order in support of the Los Alamos National Laboratory Legacy Waste Project to Waste Control Specialists (WCS) of Andrews, Texas under the Environmental Management (EM) Low-Level and Mixed Low-Level Waste Disposal Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (ID/IQ) Master Contract. The award is a firm, fixed-price task order, based on pre-established rates with a $1.29 million value and has a one-year performance period.

The work to be performed under this task order includes the receipt and disposal of 207 cubic yards of Class C Mixed Low-Level Waste generated at the DOE Los Alamos National Laboratory in Los Alamos, New Mexico. The waste is from clean-up and remediation activities.

WCS is currently the only contractor under the two EM Low-Level and Mixed Low-Level Waste Disposal ID/IQ Master Contracts that possess the proper licenses to dispose of Class C Mixed Low-Level Waste.

The mission of the Office of Environmental Management is to complete the safe cleanup of the environmental legacy brought about from five decades of nuclear weapons development and government-sponsored nuclear energy research.
