Journey through The Burrows to find the source of robotic activity.

Waste Management is a side quest in the Fallout 76 update Wild Appalachia.

Quick walkthrough

To begin Waste Management, you'll need to access The Burrows using one of two manhole covers in Harpers Ferry. One is near the Armory and the other near Highway 65. Find a dead Brotherhood of Steel scribe within, whose corpse holds information that will send you deeper into the sewers. The Burrows is balanced to be a challenge for 2+ level 50+ Vault Dwellers, but truly brave (and well geared) souls may be able to tackle it alone. If you manage to emerge victorious, you'll receive plenty of loot and experience for your troubles. The quest can only be completed once, but after it’s finished you can repeat the dungeon as many times as you’d like for even more loot and XP.fallout.bethesda.net

Involves finding the items: Burrows mission brief, Burrows old tunnel key. There is also an ambush sequence involving an Assaultron and other robot guards.
