Bury nuclear waste at earth's inner core?

Seems pretty far fetched to me, but, in reality we are running out of places to get rid of this kind of waste and everyone including me do not want it in our back yard so to speak.

Yucca Mountain: it’s nice to look at, but green it ain’t. The thought of endless nuclear waste barely contained inside a seismically-active mountain is enough to give anyone the chills. That’s why nuclear design engineer Dean Engelhardt started Permanent RadWaste Solutions, a company that proposes to send nuclear waste to the surface of Earth’s inner core.

    I agree, it is just something that is hard to get rid of and no one wants, so nothing seems to be a good fix on this one.
