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 rule.

Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 54 hours per response.
