Dispose Earth's nuclear wastes towards the sun [duplicate]

If rockets are reliable, can we throw our nuclear wastes towards the sun? The sun's gravity and it's internal energy will do the rest.

• Your question is based on a conceptual error. It's enormously expensive in terms of delta-v to send anything to the sun. space.stackexchange.com/q/38604/6944 See also space.stackexchange.com/q/4173/6944 – Organic Marble Sep 9 '20 at 12:52
• "Let the sun's gravity do the rest"- will drift slowly towards the sun. It's expensive and dangerous to store used nuclear waste materials – seccpur Sep 9 '20 at 12:56
• It doesn't work that way. Read the linked questions. – Organic Marble Sep 9 '20 at 12:56
• Starting from a circular orbit of radius $R$ around a body of radius $r$, it always costs more delta-v to deorbit than to run up to escape velocity if $R > (2\sqrt{2}+2)r$ – notovny Sep 9 '20 at 14:21
• @seccpur Ignoring extremely long-term tidal interactions,, Earth's rotational energy has nothing to do with the stability of its orbit around the Sun; If the Earth stopped rotating right now, it would still be orbiting the Sun billions of years from now when the Sun's dying stages start becoming issues. – notovny Sep 9 '20 at 14:45
