    Abstract: Owners and operators of small municipal waste combustors 
are required to comply with reporting and record keeping requirements 
for the general provisions of 40 CFR part 60, subpart A, as well as for 
the applicable standards in 40 CFR part 60, subpart AAAA. This includes 
submitting initial notification reports, performance tests and periodic 
reports and results, and maintaining 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 reports are used by EPA to determine compliance 
with the standards.
    Form Numbers: None.
    Respondents/affected entities: Small municipal waste combustors 
    Respondent's obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 60, 
subpart AAAA).
    Estimated number of respondents: 4 (total).
    Frequency of response: Initially, annually, and semiannually.
    Total estimated burden: 15,000 hours (per year). Burden is defined 
at 5 CFR 1320.3(b).
    Total estimated cost: $1,700,000 (per year), which includes 
$188,000 in annualized capital/startup and/or operation & maintenance 
    Changes in the Estimates: There is an overall increase in 
respondent burden from the most recently approved ICR due to an 
increase of one new source subject to the regulation (i.e. respondent 
universe). The growth in respondent universe results in an increase in 
the labor hours, labor costs, number of responses, and O&M costs for 
the private sector. However, there is a small adjustment decrease in 
labor hours and O&M cost for the public sector due to refinement in the 
Agency's estimates and rounding. In this ICR, we have rounded all 
estimated hours and costs to three significant digits.
