Not cost effective. Unfortunately, many poor countries are willing to take nuclear waste for way less.

Assuming you can launch a rocket that follows a perfect trajectory toward the sun (no need for any extra propulsion to counter gravitational pull) once it reaches lower earth orbits, the cheapest rocket man made to date still demands close to $4000/lb.

You give 1/10 of that to some poor countries, they will even include the freight charge with some kickbacks too.
Nothing for now
