GTA 5 Waste Management Nuclear Waste location guide

The Waste Management achievement/trophy in GTA 5 takes a bit of work, as you'll have to make a rather large business purchase and track down 30 barrels of nuclear waste. Follow along to find out how to make that purchase and where to find those barrels.

Buying the Dock

The achievement/trophy description reads: "Purchase the old dock and collect all nuclear waste." It's two simple steps that involve a lot of money and a lot of searching.

Start by playing the story until The Merryweather Heist. After the mission, the Sonar Collections Dock in Paleto Cove will be put up for sale. Head there and spend the $250,000 asking price to get yourself the "old dock." We've marked the location as dollar sign on the map.

Collecting the Nuclear Waste

Now the search begins. With the dock in your possession, you have access to a submarine. Hop in and prepare for a deep water search. For each barrel of nuclear waste found, you earn $23,000. Find all 30 barrels, and you'll be rolling in a sweet $690,000.

Here's the thing about the nuclear waste: it's found at certain distances from the surface. Considering the ocean floor has few landmarks, using screenshots to help you locate the barrels isn't very helpful. Instead, use our map in conjunction with the Trackify app on your in-game phone to find each barrel. The Trackify will ping the next barrel once one is collected, so it won't be too challenging to scoop them all up.
