Location of the radioactive waste repository, even for the waste of low and intermediate level (LILW) radioactivity, presents a great problem in almost every country that produce such a waste. Attempts to locate a disposal facility in Slovenia have proved unsuccessful. The main problem was not a technical one, but sociopsychological, namely the acceptability of this kind of repository. In general people strongly oppose to any kind of such a facility in their vicinity (NIMBY) even if they are aware of it's necessity. In this paper we try to analyse public surveys and other research on this problem, done in Slovenia during the last fifteen years.
