    Title: Emissions Guidelines for Commercial and Industrial Solid 
Waste Incineration Units (Renewal)
    ICR Numbers: EPA ICR Number 1927.05, OMB Control Number 2060-0451.
    ICR Status: This ICR is scheduled to expire on June 30, 2010. Under 
OMB regulations, the Agency may continue to conduct or sponsor the 
collection of information while this submission is pending at OMB. 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 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 Emission Guidelines for Commercial and Industrial 
Solid Waste Incineration (CISWI) Units were promulgated on December 1, 
2000. The guidelines (standards) apply to solid waste incinerators in 
40 CFR part 60, subpart DDDD. These standards fulfill the requirements 
of sections 111 and 129 of the Clean Air Act (CAA). This subpart 
affects the administrator of an air quality program in a state, or 
United States protectorate with one or more existing CISWI units that 
commenced construction either on, or before, November 30, 1999.
    Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping 
burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 232 
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: Commercial and industrial solid 
waste incineration units.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 97.
    Frequency of Response: Initially, occasionally, semiannually and 
    Estimated Total Annual Hour Burden: 31,619.
    Estimated Total Annual Cost: $2,904,577, which includes $2,884,110 
in labor costs, no capital/startup costs, and $20,467 in operation and 
maintenance (O&M) costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in the cost to the 
respondents in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to 
two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past 
three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three 
years; and (2) the growth rate for the respondents is very low, 
negative or non-existent. Therefore, the cost figures in the previous 
ICR reflect the current burden to the respondents and are reiterated in 
this ICR. However, there is a decrease of one hour in the total labor 
hours to the respondent in this ICR due to rounding.
    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, actions related to 
case development activities have been removed from the Agency cost 
figures. Therefore, the cost to the Agency as reported in this ICR has 
been reduced from $87,648.00 to $46,463.00
