ICR numbers: EPA ICR No. 1745.06, OMB Control No. 2050-0154.
ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2009. 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.

Abstract: The 1984 Hazardous and Solid Waste Amendments (HSWA) to the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), as amended, mandated that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) revise the Criteria for Solid Waste Disposal Facilities that may receive household hazardous wastes and conditionally exempt small quantity generator (CESQG) wastes. In order to effectively implement and enforce these regulations (found at 40 CFR part 257, subpart B) on a State level, owners/operators of construction and demolition waste landfills that receive CESQG hazardous wastes have to comply with reporting and recordkeeping requirements. This ICR documents the ongoing recordkeeping and reporting burdens associated with the location and ground-water Start Printed Page 4189monitoring provisions contained in 40 CFR part 257, subpart B.
Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 74 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.
Estimated Number of Respondents: 152.
Frequency of Response: On occasion.
Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 11,219.
Estimated Total Annual Cost (in thousands of dollars): $2,014,382, which includes $1,577,659 annualized capital or O&M costs.
Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 2,362 hours in the total estimated burden currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved ICR Burdens. This decrease is due to the reduction in the total number of Construction & Demolition landfills.Start Signature
