Hazardous remediation waste management sites must comply with all parts of 40 CFR part 264 except subparts B, C, and D. In place of these requirements, they need to comply with performance standards based on the general requirement goals in these sections, which are codified at 40 CFR 264.1(j). Under § 264.1(j), owners/operators of remediation waste management sites must develop and maintain procedures to prevent accidents. These procedures must address proper design, construction, maintenance, and operation of hazardous remediation waste management units at the site. In addition, owners/operators must develop and maintain a contingency and emergency plan to control accidents that occur. The plan must explain specifically how to treat, store, and dispose of the hazardous remediation waste in question, and must be implemented immediately whenever fire, explosion, or release of hazardous waste or hazardous waste constituents that could threaten human health or the environment. In addition, the Remedial Action Plan streamlines the permitting process for remediation waste management sites to allow cleanups to take place more quickly. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Private sector, as well as State, Local, or Tribal governments. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (RCRA § 3004(u)). Estimated number of respondents: 183. Frequency of response: One-time. Total estimated burden: 6,361 hours per year. Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b). Total estimated cost: $399,803 (per year), which includes $350,307 in annualized labor and $49,496 in annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is a decrease of 592 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease is due to a decrease in the number of hazardous remediation waste management sites. Courtney Kerwin, Director, Regulatory Support Division.

The telephone number for the Docket Center is 202–566–1744. For additional information about EPA’s public docket, visit: http:// www.epa.gov/dockets. 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.
