    Abstract: The affected entities are subject to the General 
Provisions of the NESHAP at 40 CFR part 63, subpart A, and any changes, 
or additions to the Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart 
AAAA. Owners or operators of affected facilities must submit initial 
notification, performance tests, and periodic reports and results. 
Owners or operators 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. Reports, at a minimum, are required 
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of municipal 
solid waste landfills.
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, 
subpart AAAA).
    Estimated number of respondents: 1,127 (total).
    Frequency of response: Occasionally and semiannually.
    Total estimated burden: 20,900 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $2,120,000 (per year), includes $16,900 
annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs.
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an increase in the total 
estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of 
Approved Burdens. This increase is due to an increase in the number of 
new sources due to industry growth; it is not due to any program 
changes. In addition, we have adjusted the respondent burden 
calculation to assume all respondents will re-familiarize themselves 
with the regulatory requirements each year. There is also an increase 
in the total O&M cost associated with this ICR. Similar to the total 
estimated burden, EPA has adjusted the total O&M cost to account for 
industry growth that has occurred since the previous ICR.
