The Government of Zimbabwe is undertaking the project to construct a centralized waste facility . The waste management facility will ensure proper storage of disused radioactive sources. National requirements dictate that users of radiation devices must send them back to supplier at the end of their useful life, however a number of companies are failing to return these sources to manufacture due to a multiplicity of reasons resulting in them being stored on site. These sources are vulnerable to loss and thefts as well as improper handling and storage thus presents a nuclear security challenge.
