This is why we need to be spacefaring species... Just send our waste into the sun... Or find a way to use it as rocket fuel.

I say just build a miniature scaled down model of the nuclear capsules at the site. When the mini capsules are opened maybe it can contain just enough to contaminate a small area and a few discoverers. Either that or just bury our dead around and make it appear that they have died from entry.
