The technology to use spent fuel rods have been around since the 50s. Problem was Jimmy Carter banned there use for fear that these fuel rods would be acquired by terrorists.
Reality many countries recycle the fuel rods to produce energy. Only we are stupid enough to try to bury them without even having a facility to do so. Until that ban is lifted we will continue to lose out on a source of energy.
And to answer your question no there isnt a good reason not to use them.
