I know about this, but it's a problem that poses itself only when you dismantle an old plant, or otherwise substitute materials in a running one, so the amount and frequency of waste is much lower, plus we're talking of nuclear isotopes of otherwise stable materials, activated by the neutron flux. Once the flux stops, they tend to decay pretty quickly. I'm not saying that the waste problem goes away, just that it's manageable within a lifetime.
