The results of a survey and search for fissile materials in a number of radioactive waste burials in the Chernobyl exclusion zone are presented. The content of radioactive isotopes in buried radioactive wastes in separate PWLD "Staraya stroybaza", PZRO "3rd stage of the Chernobyl NPP" and "Podlesny" has been determined experimentally. The state of burials and suggestions on the method of such surveys are given.
Keywords: Chernobyl exclusion zone, radioactive waste, radioactive waste’s disposal.
