Affected entities: EPA assumes that industrial waste units that previously co-disposed non-hazardous wastes and conditionally exempt small quantity generator (CESQG) hazardous waste on-site have ceased that practice and that commercial off-site industrial waste units are operating with stringent environmental controls in place. Therefore, entities that potentially will be affected by this action are limited to those that dispose of CESQG hazardous wastes in construction and demolition (C&D) waste landfills.
Title: Criteria for Classification of Solid Waste Disposal Facilities and Practices, Recordkeeping and Reporting Requirements—40 CFR part 257, subpart B, EPA ICR Number 1745.05, OMB Control Number 2050-0154.
Abstract: In order to effectively implement and enforce final changes to 40 CFR part 257—subpart B on a State level, owners/operators of construction and demolition waste landfills that receive CESQG hazardous wastes will have to comply with the final reporting and recordkeeping requirements. 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 number for EPA's regulations are listed in 40 CFR part 9 and 48 CFR chapter 15. This continuing ICR documents the recordkeeping and reporting burdens associated with the location and ground-water monitoring provisions contained in 40 CFR part 257—subpart B.
The EPA would like to solicit comments to:
(i) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility;Start Printed Page 42062
(ii) Evaluate the accuracy of the Agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used;
(iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and
(iv) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.
