Affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this action are those business, institutions, and government agencies that voluntarily sign up to participate in EPA’s WasteWise program. Title: Reporting and Recordkeeping Requirements Under EPA’s WasteWise program. Abstract: EPA’s voluntary WasteWise program encourages businesses and other organizations to reduce solid waste through waste prevention, recycling, and the purchase or manufacture of recycled-content products. WasteWise participants include partners, which commit to implementing waste reduction activities of their choice, and endorsers which PO 00000 Frm 00074 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 promote the WasteWise program and waste reduction to their members. The Partner Registration Form identifies an organization and its facilities registering to participate in WasteWise, and requires the signature of a senior official that can commit the organization to the program. (This form can be submitted either electronically or in hard copy.) Within six months of registering, each partner is asked to conduct a waste assessment and submit baseline data and waste reduction goals to EPA via the Annual Assessment Form. (This form can also be submitted either electronically or in hard copy.) On an annual basis partners are asked to report, via the Annual Assessment Form, on their progress toward achieving their waste reduction goals by estimating amounts of waste prevented and recyclables collected, and describing buying or manufacturing recycled-content products. They can also provide WasteWise with information on total waste prevention revenue, total recycling revenue, total avoided purchasing costs due to waste prevention, and total avoided disposal costs due to recycling and waste prevention. Additionally, they are asked to submit new waste reduction goals. Endorsers, which are typically trade associations or state/local governments, submit the Endorser Registration Form once during their endorser relationship with WasteWise. (This form can be submitted either electronically or in hard copy.) The Endorser Registration Form identifies the organization, the principal contact, and the activities to which the Endorser commits. EPA’s WasteWise program uses the submitted information to (1) identify and recognize outstanding waste reduction achievements by individual organizations, (2) compile aggregate results that indicate overall accomplishments of WasteWise partners, (3) identify cost-effective waste reduction strategies to share with other organizations, and (4) identify topics on which to develop assistance and information efforts. 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. 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; E:\FR\FM\30JNN1.SGM 30JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 125 / Thursday, June 30, 2005 / Notices (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. Burden Statement: The respondent burden for this collection is estimated to average 1 hour per response for the Partner Registration Form, 40 hours per response for the Annual Assessment Form, and 16 hours per response for the Endorser Registration Form. This results in an estimated annual partner respondent burden of 41 hours for new partners, 40 hours for established partners, and a one-time respondent burden of 10 hours for endorsers. The estimated number of respondents is 1,325 in Year 1; 1,425 in Year 2; and 1,525 in Year 3. Estimated total annual burden on all respondents is 52,350 hours in Year 1; 56,350 hours in Year 2; and 60,350 hours in Year 3. 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; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information.

    The Partner Registration Form identifies an organization and its 
facilities registering to participate in WasteWise, and requires the 
signature of a senior official that can commit the organization to the 
program. (This form can be submitted either electronically or in hard 
copy.) Within six months of registering, each partner is asked to 
conduct a waste assessment and submit baseline data and waste reduction 
goals to EPA via the Annual Assessment Form. (This form can also be 
submitted either electronically or in hard copy.) On an annual basis 
partners are asked to report, via the Annual Assessment Form, on their

    Endorsers, which are typically trade associations or state/local

endorser relationship with WasteWise. (This form can be submitted 
either electronically or in hard copy.) The Endorser Registration Form 
identifies the organization, the principal contact, and the activities 
to which the Endorser commits.
    EPA's WasteWise program uses the submitted information to (1) 
identify and recognize outstanding waste reduction achievements by 
individual organizations, (2) compile aggregate results that indicate 
overall accomplishments of WasteWise partners, (3) identify cost-
effective waste reduction strategies to share with other organizations, 
and (4) identify topics on which to develop assistance and information 
efforts.
    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.
    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;

[[Page 37819]]

    (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.
    Burden Statement: The respondent burden for this collection is 
estimated to average 1 hour per response for the Partner Registration 
Form, 40 hours per response for the Annual Assessment Form, and 16 
hours per response for the Endorser Registration Form. This results in 
an estimated annual partner respondent burden of 41 hours for new 
partners, 40 hours for established partners, and a one-time respondent 
burden of 10 hours for endorsers.
    The estimated number of respondents is 1,325 in Year 1; 1,425 in 
Year 2; and 1,525 in Year 3. Estimated total annual burden on all 
respondents is 52,350 hours in Year 1; 56,350 hours in Year 2; and 
60,350 hours in Year 3.
    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;
