Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) apply to MSW landfills for which construction, modification, or reconstruction commences either on or after May 30, 1991. A MSW landfill is an entire disposal facility in a contiguous geographical space where household waste is placed in or on. An MSW landfill may also receive other types of RCRA Subtitle D wastes (§ 257.2 of this title) such as commercial solid waste, nonhazardous sludge, conditionally exempt small quantity generator waste, and industrial solid waste. Portions of an MSW landfill may be separated by access roads. An MSW landfill may be publicly or privately owned, and may be a new landfill, an existing landfill, or a lateral expansion. On August 29, 2016 (81 FR 59332), EPA finalized a new NSPS subpart (40 CFR part 60, subpart XXX) based on its review of subpart WWW. Concurrently, EPA finalized revised Emissions Guidelines under a new subpart (40 CFR part 60, subpart Cf). The new Emission Guidelines apply to existing landfills accepting waste after 1987 for which construction was commenced either on or before July 17, 2014. Subpart XXX applies to MSW landfills that are new, reconstructed, or modified after July 17, 2014. The requirements in Subpart WWW mimic most of the requirements in these new rules, except for that the control threshold in new rules require PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 controls at additional landfills beyond what Subpart WWW requires. In general, all NSPS standards require initial notifications, performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/ operators of the affected facilities. They are also required to maintain 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 notifications, reports, and records are essential in determining compliance with 40 CFR part 60, subpart WWW. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) Landfills. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, subpart WWW). Estimated number of respondents: 661 (total). Frequency of response: Annually. Total estimated burden: 760 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $86,600 (per year); there are no annualized capital/ startup and/or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease in the burden hours and the Capital/O&M costs in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. The change in burden and cost estimates occurred as a result of the 2016 NSPS (40 CFR part 60, subpart XXX) and Emissions Guidelines (40 CFR part 60, subpart Cf). Most of the burden previously attributed to the ICR for subpart WWW has been accounted for in the 2016 ICRs for both subparts XXX (ICR 2498.03, OMB 2060–0697) and Cf (ICR 2522.02, OMB 2060–0720) to avoid duplication of burden for identical requirements. There is an increase in number of responses compared to the previous ICR. While this ICR does not duplicate responses for the 2016 ICRs, each respondent was counted as a respondent that does not report but maintains records under subpart WWW and this resulted in an increase number of responses.

    Abstract: The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Municipal 
Solid Waste (MSW) apply to MSW landfills for which construction, 
modification, or reconstruction commences either on or after May 30, 
1991. A MSW landfill is an entire disposal facility in a contiguous 
geographical space where household waste is placed in or on. An MSW 
landfill may also receive other types of RCRA Subtitle D wastes (Sec.  
257.2 of this title) such as commercial solid waste, nonhazardous 
sludge, conditionally exempt small quantity generator waste, and 
industrial solid waste. Portions of an MSW landfill may be separated by 
access roads. An MSW landfill may be publicly or privately owned, and 
may be a new landfill, an existing landfill, or a lateral expansion.
    On August 29, 2016 (81 FR 59332), EPA finalized a new NSPS subpart 
(40 CFR part 60, subpart XXX) based on its review of subpart WWW. 
Concurrently, EPA finalized revised Emissions Guidelines under a new 
subpart (40 CFR part 60, subpart Cf). The new Emission Guidelines apply 
to existing landfills accepting waste after 1987 for which construction 
was commenced either on or before July 17, 2014. Subpart XXX applies to 
MSW landfills that are new, reconstructed, or modified after July 17, 
2014. The requirements in Subpart WWW mimic most of the requirements in 
these new rules, except for that the control threshold in new rules 
require controls at additional landfills beyond what Subpart WWW 
requires.
    In general, all NSPS standards require initial notifications, 
performance tests, and periodic reports by the owners/operators of the 
affected facilities. They are also required to maintain 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 notifications, reports, and 
records are essential in determining compliance with 40 CFR part 60, 
subpart WWW.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Municipal Solid Waste (MSW) 
Landfills.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart WWW).
    Estimated number of respondents: 661 (total).
    Frequency of response: Annually.
    Total estimated burden: 760 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 
5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $86,600 (per year); there are no annualized 
capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease in the burden hours 
and the Capital/O&M costs in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. The 
change in burden and cost estimates occurred as a result of the 2016 
NSPS (40 CFR part 60, subpart XXX) and Emissions Guidelines (40 CFR 
part 60, subpart Cf). Most of the burden previously attributed to the 
ICR for subpart WWW has been accounted for in the 2016 ICRs for both 
subparts XXX (ICR 2498.03, OMB 2060-0697) and Cf (ICR 2522.02, OMB 
2060-0720) to avoid duplication of burden for identical requirements. 
There is an increase in number of responses compared to the previous 
ICR. While this ICR does not duplicate responses for the 2016 ICRs, 
each respondent was counted as a respondent that does not report but
