A - Too expensive.
B - Rockets have a relatively high rate of malfunction.

If you found a cheap, reliable way to do it, then it might work..

2 shuttles destroyed out of 120 missions. Do you know how much radioactive waste there is? Thousands of tons. That would be a LOT of missions. So even if there was only a 1% rate of failure, that would still be a good few failures.

Not to mention the expenses. It's not at all economical to send it to space. Estimates are AT LEAST $60 million per launch. And one rocket can't even hold that much...


On paper, it's a good idea. In practice, not so much.

It's still gonna cost just as much for research, construction, fuel, etc.

Not $60 million for a relatively very small amount of waste.
