CTDL 041: Darn, there goes my brilliant plan

So, I can see the explanation that the nuclear waste shouldn’t be dropped into volcanoes (they blow up occasionally and then the waste would just end up in the atmosphere), but I’m not sure medical waste wouldn’t be a valid option in some instances (sanitized by fire and all that… though the effort to get it to a volcano would probably make it not worth it). I think the concept of utilizing the earth’s hot and juicy center to do something else for us could be an interesting route of investigation though.
