SNF is easy to reprocess. Use fluoride volatility and fractional distillation.

Extract the transuranics with fluoride volatility and burn in a Liquid Fluoride Thorium Reactor.

Radiation is good for you, it is God himself/herself, whatever.
It speeds up evolution.

Radioactivity cannot be 'processed'.
It has to be buried.
Better yet, burry it to center of planet
