ICR Status: This ICR is for a new information collection activity. 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, and 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. The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: The Paperwork Reduction Act requires the information found in this Information Collection Request, to assess the burden (in hours and dollars) of the reporting and record keeping necessary to maintain the Responsible Appliance Disposal (RAD) Program. The RAD Program, developed in 2006, is a voluntary, non-regulatory program that promotes the proper handling of refrigerated household appliances at the time of their disposal. EPA is partnering with utilities, municipalities, retailers, manufacturers, and universities to promote the proper disposal of older household appliances, namely refrigerators, freezers, window air conditioning units, and dehumidifiers, in order to prevent emissions of refrigerants and foam-blowing agents that are ozone depleting substances and/ or greenhouse gases. The Program is also expected to save landfill space, save energy used by older appliances, lead to the recovery of valuable materials for use in making new products (e.g., metals, plastics, glass), and prevent the release of hazardous substances—including PCBs, mercury, and used oil. Utilities, municipalities, retailers, manufacturers, and universities can participate in the program for guidance on proper appliance disposal practices and recognition of their efforts. Participation in the program begins with completion of a Partnership Agreement VerDate Aug<31>2005 21:48 Nov 15, 2007 Jkt 214001 that outlines responsibilities of the RAD Program. This Partnership Agreement reflects a voluntary agreement between a utility, municipality, retailer, manufacturer, or university and EPA. By joining the program, a Partner agrees to complete an annual reporting form identifying the appliances handled and the fates of their components. If the reporting form is completed electronically, it provides feedback for the user on the gross impact of their program on the environment, energy savings, and consumer savings. This agreement can be terminated by either Party 20 days after the receipt of written notice by the other Party with no penalties or continuing obligations. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 6 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. Respondents/Affected Entities: Utilities, municipalities, retailers, manufacturers, and universities. Estimated Number of Respondents: 50. Frequency of Response: Annual. Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 302 hours. Estimated Total Annual Cost: $26,283 in labor costs and no annualized capital or O&M costs. Dated: November 8, 2007.
