    Abstract: In order to effectively implement and enforce final 
changes to 40 CFR Part 258 on a State level, owners/operators of 
municipal solid waste landfills have to comply with the final reporting 
and recordkeeping requirements. Respondents include owners or operators

lateral expansions of existing MSWLFs. The respondents, in complying 
with 40 CFR Part 258, are required to record information in the 
facility operating record, pursuant to Sec.  258.29, as it becomes 
available. The operating record must be supplied to the State as 
requested until the end of the post-closure care period of the MSWLF. 
The information collected will be used by the State Director to confirm 
owner or operator compliance with the regulations under Part 258. These 
owners or operators could include Federal, State, and local 
governments, and private waste management companies. Facilities in 
NAICS codes 9221, 5622, 3252, 3251 and 3253 may be affected by this 
    Form Numbers: None.

    Estimated number of respondents: 3,800.
    Frequency of response: Once, On occasion.

approved by OMB. This decrease is due to an adjustment for current 
estimates of burden hours.
