Subject: [JTRProfessionalRecyclersNetwork] potassium iodide
Don Mauer from NH is looking for help trying to find an alternative to disposal for managing Potassium Iodide tablets that are past their useful life. If you have any suggestions, please respond to him directly, as he is not on the JTR listserve, Brenda G.
The State of New Hampshire has 2 pallets of Potassium Iodide tablets that are individually wrapped in aluminum foil packets. These were to be used in case our Seabrook, NH or Vermont's Yankee nuclear power plant had a release accident. They have expired. While they can be landfilled, that is fundamentally not a sound idea. Has any other state had this issue and how have you resolved it? We would love to find a recycling opportunity for these.
