The 4-part guidelines cover ways to measure radiation levels and remove radioactive substances. They also show how to collect, deliver and store radiation-tainted soil and other materials.

It says moss and dead leaves should be manually removed before high-pressure sprays are used to save water.  It adds that the used water should not be drained but collected in buckets.

The guidelines propose the use of separate containers for different levels of radiation-contaminated soil. They also give the safe distances of storage spaces from residential areas.
