SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Supporting documents which explain in detail 
the information that the EPA will be collecting are available in the 
public docket for this ICR. The docket can be viewed online at 
www.regulations.gov or in person at the EPA Docket Center, EPA West, 
Room 3334, 1301 Constitution Ave. NW., Washington, DC. The telephone

    Abstract: 3004 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act 
(RCRA), as amended, requires that EPA develop standards for hazardous 
waste treatment, storage, and disposal as may be necessary to protect 
human health and the environment. Subsections 3004(d), (e), and (g) 
require EPA to promulgate regulations that prohibit the land disposal 
of hazardous waste unless it meets specified treatment standards 
described in subsection 3004(m).
    The regulations implementing these requirements are codified in the 
Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 40, Part 268. EPA requires that 
facilities maintain the data outlined in this ICR so that the Agency 
can ensure that land disposed waste meets the treatment standards. EPA 
strongly believes that the recordkeeping requirements are necessary for 
the agency to fulfill its congressional mandate to protect human health 
and the environment.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Private sector and State, Local, or 
Tribal governments.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR Part 268).
    Estimated number of respondents: 90,500.
    Frequency of response: Once, Occasionally.
    Total estimated burden: 646,455 hours per year. Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.03(b).
    Total estimated cost: $86,668,517 (per year), includes $33,928,964 
labor and $52,739,553 annualized capital or operation & maintenance 
costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 561,927 hours in 
the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. This decrease is due to a better estimate in the 
number of small quantity generators (SQGs). Unlike large quantity 
generators that have to fill out a Hazardous Waste Report every 2 
years, SQGs do not need to report. Therefore the total count of SQGs 
does not fluctuate with time, like the LQG count, rather it only 
increases. EPA felt the SQG universe estimate in this ICR was over-
inflated because SQGs that no longer exist were still being counted. 
EPA developed a new methodology for counting SQGs which only includes 
those SQGs still in business as far back as 2007.
