In this paper, a radiological model for the risk assessment is developed for the near surface disposal facilities of Cesium, Strontium and Cobalt. In addition to the time-dependent annual release rate and dose rate of the radionuclides, the risk to the critical individual is also estimated. The results show that the highest value of annual dose rate is less than the dose limit to the critical individual. The highest value of dose rate appears at about 200years, and at this time, dominant radionuclides are Cs-137 and Sr-90. The risk obtained is much lower than the specified tolerable risk
