I believe that uranyl acetate, just like thorium nitrate, is unregulated radioactive material as it isn't enriched. However, it becomes a disposal nightmare as EPA sites won't take it due to it's radioactivity (it's actually pretty high, try it sometime). Therefore, it must be disposed of as radioactive waste. You can accumulate it on site no worries, but I would manage it as radioactive waste and keep it in the stream just to be safe (and true).

Is uranyl acetate from EMS (cat# 22400) low level radioactive material? Does a facility need to have it on its radiation licence if it uses less than 100 gram quantities?
