Realising a deep geological repository for low and intermediate level waste will cost about 2.8 billion francs. Estimated costs of about 5.9 billion francs will be incurred for a repository for high-level waste (including packing of the spent fuel elements and highly radioactive waste).
The producers of radioactive waste must bear the costs that are incurred in association with the disposal of radioactive waste ("user pays" principle). It is the operators of nuclear power plants who are responsible for the disposal of waste produced from nuclear energy, while the federal State (Swiss Confederation) is responsible for waste from healthcare, industry, and research.
