Along with large glowing black and white LCD images of selection of uranium disposal cells in the southwest of America, this map that features Radioactive Disposal Sites in the United States of America.

The Beatty radioactive disposal site, Nevada, was closed in 1992. It is located in NYE County in the Amargosa Desert.
It has been active from 1962 to 1992 receiving 4.3 million cubic feet of low-level waste.
The site contains low-level medical waste from hospitals and university laboratories and low-level waste from routine operations at nuclear power plants.
As CLUI points out, the Beatty site is still used as a non-radioactive hazardous waste disposal site.
If you are in Los Angeles in September, I highly recommend to see this exhibition.
