A form of pollution associated with nuclear power reactors is
Radioactive waste/spillage/contamination for this type of pollution is the most common method of describing it.
A form of pollution associated with nuclear power reactors is nuclear waste.Nuclear reactors produce several tons of spent fuel each year which is highly radioactive but it is kept under tight controls as the radioactivity decays and the spent fuel cools thus it isn't "pollution" in this sense because it doesn't get out where you don't want it.
Nuclear plants do discharge slightly warmer water than they intake which could be described as pollution if it were shown to harm the environment. Generally, the local animals appreciate the warmer water.
Radioactive waste is your answer, nasty, dirty, toxic radioactive waste.
