A set of economic ground rules is proposed for making cost comparisons between various alternative options for disposing of low-level radioactive wastes. Included are procedures for converting all costs to a common basis and a description of the types of costs that should be included. The major cost factors are identified for several alternatives for the disposal of contaminated soils and neutron activated metallic structure. A program for the actual cost analysis is outlined, and manpower estimates for the studies are presented.
