FACTS: launching rockets is safe, they DONT blow up.
nuclear waste is dangerous if it's kept on Earth, one day, something will go wrong.
the sun can use our waste
cost is NOT an issue, it costs MORE to store it here for ten thousand years

How about catapulting all the nuclear waste into the sun?
Launching a big capsule at many kilometers per second would take it straight to the sun with minimal costs.
Cern Missing Black Hole Raises New Safety Concerns

An article discussing the safety of the CERN Large Hadron Collider, after an alleged containment breach.
In April 2008 the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) held an official open day for the launch of the world’s largest particle accelerator, otherwise known as Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
In September of the same year, CERN was forced to shut down the LHC due to an electrical malfunction which caused a huge helium leak.
However, it has now been alleged that the reported helium leak was actually a cover story for a containment breach, after an artificially created micro black hole was reported as missing.
An unnamed source has suggested that the particle collision test went ahead as planned, and that following the experiment a number of micro black holes were created. The black holes were in the process of being documented and evaluated, when it was noticed that one of the micro black holes was missing.

Its smarter to keep Earths resources right here on Earth instead of actually completely disposing of Earths resources.
One mans garbage, is another mans gold.
If the garbage pits were large enough here on Earth, then in the future they would be mined for all of the valuable metals and petroleum products (plastics) that could easily be recovered; and anything else as far as that goes.

• Design every product in such a way that at the end of its lifecycle the component materials become a new resource.
Design buildings in such a way that they produce energy and become a friend to the environment. Large companies like Ford and Nike are working with McDonough and Braun gart to change their production facilities and their products. They realize that economically seen waste is destruction of capital.
