Title: “Hazardous Remediation Waste Management Requirements (HWIR-Media),” OMB Control No. 2050-0161; EPA ICR No. 1775.03, expiration date June 30, 2002. This is a request for extension of a currently approved collection.

Abstract: All information collection activities required by this rule are authorized by sections 3004 and 3005 of the Solid Waste Disposal Act of 1970, as amended by the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1976 (RCRA), as amended by the Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments of 1984 (HSWA), 42 U.S.C. 6912(a), 6921, 6924, 6925, 6926, and 6927. EPA believes the information collection for this rule is necessary to balance streamlined regulations of remediation wastes with the Agency's responsibility to protect human health and the environment. The respondents are primarily owners or operators of facilities that wish to voluntarily clean up contamination of their site. The information to be collected includes the name, location and other identifying information for the site, a chemical and physical analysis of the waste or contaminated media to be managed, along with a plan for the management of such materials sufficient to determine whether the management of these materials will be protective of human health and the environment and will be in compliance with standards established pursuant to RCRA.

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 are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR Chapter 15. The Federal Register document required under 5 CFR 1320.8(d), soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on March 20, 2002 (67 FR 12988); no comments were received.

Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and record keeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average about 28 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; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; Start Printed Page 44832complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.
