Do you know what your country does with it’s (& yours) radioactive waste?
Maybe they sent it to Russia:

But what happened there, in the 1960ies? One of the worst and biggest atomic accidents in history. Russia produced Plutonium there (also in Chernobyl, as you maybe know). There are six atomic reactors, one is running, a reprocessing facility and more than 100 tanks for radioatice waste. This brings us to the real thing:
From 1949 – 1951 2,7 million curie contaminated the river “Tetscha”. Why? It was an official decission. That’s how they cleaned the radioactive waste up. The area is still contamined today.
Then, in1957 – the Kyshtim-accident. On September 29th a tank with liquid radioative waste exploded. More than 20 million curie were set free. More than 2 million generated a cloud which spread above 15,000 square meters.
Not until 1989 the Russian Government made this public.
