This report presents the results of an economic evaluation of the storage of nonradioactive hazardous wastes in underground mine openings. This study is a part of a continuous effort to find a new and better method of disposing or storing hazardous wastes in an environmentally acceptable manner. The technical assessment of the hazardous waste storage in underground mine openings performed in an earlier study indicated that long-term storage of hazardous wastes in a room and pillar type salt mine was an environmentally acceptable method provided that certain precautions are taken. This study is performed to develop the cost data associated with the storage of hazardous wastes in a typical room and pillar type salt mine, including the capital and operating costs. This study also involved characterization of the wastes and conceptual design of the waste receiving, treatment, containerization, and storage facilities.
