    Title: NESHAP for Hazardous Waste Combustors (Renewal).
    ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1773.10, OMB Control No. 2050-0171.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2012. Under 
OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the 
collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. An 
Agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to 
respond to, a collection of information, unless it displays a currently 
valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for EPA's regulations 
in title 40 of the CFR, after appearing in the Federal Register when 
approved, are listed in 40 CFR part 9, are displayed either by 
publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such 
as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The 
display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is 
consolidated in 40 CFR part 9.
    Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General 
Provisions of the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air 
Pollutants (NESHAP) at 40 CFR part 63, Subpart A, and any changes, or 
additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, Subpart EEE. 
Hazardous waste combustors include: hazardous waste incinerators, 
hazardous waste cement kilns, hazardous waste lightweight aggregate 
kilns, hazardous waste solid fuel boilers, hazardous waste liquid fuel 
boilers, and hazardous waste hydrochloric acid production furnaces. 
Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit a one-time-
only report of any physical or operational changes, notification of 
exceedances, notification of performance test and continuous monitoring 
system evaluation, notification of intent to comply, notification of 
compliance, notification if the owner or operator elects to comply with 
alternative requirements, initial performance tests, and periodic 
reports and results.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 42 
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 or operators of combustion 
units burning hazardous waste, States.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 208.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually, and 
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 142,447 Hours.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $19,665,792, includes $100,059 for 
annualized capital cost and $3,951,790 for operation and maintenance 
(O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 57,450 hours in 
the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved ICR Burdens. This burden decrease is due to a decrease in the 
number of estimated hazardous waste combustors affected by this ICR 
since the last renewal.
