Abstract: Owners and operators of municipal solid waste landfills are required to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements for the General Provisions (40 CFR part 60, subpart A), as well as the applicable standards in 40 CFR part 60, subpart Cc and 40 CFR part 62 Subpart GGG. This includes submitting initial notifications, performance tests and periodic reports and results, and maintaining records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. These reports are used by EPA to determine compliance with these standards.

Form Numbers: None.

Respondents/affected entities: Owners and operators of privately-owned and publicly-owned municipal solid waste landfills, as well as for State and local agencies administering the State Plans.

Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60 subpart Cc and 40 CFR part 62 subpart GGG).

Estimated number of respondents: 493 (total).

Frequency of response: Annually and occasionally.

Total estimated burden: 6,520 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).

Total estimated cost: $449,000 (per year), which includes $0 for annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.

Changes in the estimates: There is a decrease in both the burden hours and the Capital/O&M costs in this ICR as compared to the previous ICR. The change in burden and cost estimates occurred as a result of the reporting in both the 2016 NSPS (40 CFR part 60, subpart XXX) and Emissions Guidelines (40 CFR part 60, subpart Cf). Most of the burdens previously attributed to the ICR for Subpart Cc and Subpart WWW have been accounted for in the 2016 ICRs for Subpart XXX (OMB Control Number 2060-0697) and Subpart Cf (OMB Control Number 2060-0720) to avoid duplication of burden for identical requirements.
