Latest articles I've found on German nuke waste issue:
The city of Oak Ridge, Tenn., is anticipating the arrival of nearly 1,000 tons of nuclear waste from Germany. The Nuclear Regulatory Commission approved a plan in June for an American company to import and burn low-level nuclear waste from Germany.
Radioactive residue left over from the process will be sent back to Germany for disposal, but opponents have voiced concerns that the U.S. will become the world's radioactive waste processor.
But, very little of that opposition is coming from Oak Ridge.

In early June, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission approved export/import licenses necessary for EnergySolutions to bring up to 1,000 tons of low-level radioactive waste from Germany to Oak Ridge for incineration and treatment. Before the end of June, the NRC issued those licenses to the Utah-based waste company.
However, EnergySolutions still isn't saying when the waste shipments could begin arriving at the company's Bear Creek waste-processing operation in Oak Ridge.
