    Title: NSPS for Small Municipal Waste Combustors (Renewal) .
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1900.05, OMB Control Number 2060-0423.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2013. 
Under OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to either conduct or 
sponsor the collection of information while this submission is pending 
at OMB.
    Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General 
Provisions of the NSPS at 40 CFR part 60, subpart A and any changes, or 
additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 60, subpart AAAA.
    Owners or operators of the affected facilities must make an initial 
notification report, performance tests, periodic reports, and maintain 
records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or 
malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period 
during which the monitoring system is inoperative. Reports are also 
required semiannually.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is

[[Page 95]]

estimated to average 1,235 hours per response. ``Burden'' means the 
total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to 
generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or 
for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review 
instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and 
systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying 
information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and 
providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any 
previously applicable instructions and requirements which have 
subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a 
collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the 
collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the 
information.
    Respondents/Affected Entities: Owners and operators of small 
municipal waste combustors.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 3.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually and 
annually.
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 12,351.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $1,364,227, which includes $1,195,891 
in labor costs, $66,000 in capital/startup costs, and $102,336 in 
operation and maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in burden hours for 
the respondents from the most recently approved ICR due to an increase 
of one new source subject to the regulation (i.e. respondent universe). 
The growth in respondent universe also results in an increase in the 
respondent labor costs and O&M costs.
    Additionally, there is an increase in burden costs for the Agency 
from the most recently approved ICR due to an adjustment in labor 
rates. This ICR uses updated labor rates from the Bureau of Labor 
Statistics to calculate all burden costs.
