Los Alamos National Laboratory is resuming regular shipments to WIPP in Carlsbad.

For the first time in over four years, LANL announced that radioactive waste was successfully shipped to WIPP last week.

WIPP began accepting shipments again last year after being closed for three years.

That was reportedly due to leaked radiation from a drum of waste sent from LANL.
