The New Source Performance Standards (NSPS) for Other Solid Waste Incineration (OSWI) Units (40 CFR part 60, subpart EEEE) apply to very small municipal waste combustion units and institutional waste incineration units. A new incineration unit subject to this subpart should meet either one of two criteria: (1) Commenced construction after December 9, 2004; or (2) commenced reconstruction or modification either on or after June 16, 2006. A very small municipal waste combustion unit is any municipal waste combustion unit that has the capacity to combust less than 35 tons per day of municipal solid waste or refuse-derived fuel. An institutional waste incineration unit is any combustion unit that combusts institutional waste and is a distinct operating unit of the institutional facility that generated the waste. Institutional waste is solid waste that is combusted at any institutional facility using controlled flame combustion in an enclosed, distinct operating unit with one of the following characteristics: (1) whose design does not provide for energy recovery; or (2) operated without energy recovery; or (3) operated with only waste heat recovery. Institutional waste also means solid waste combusted on site in an air curtain incinerator that is a distinct operating unit of any institutional facility. 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 EEEE.

  Total Request Previously Approved Change Due to New Statute Change Due to Agency Discretion Change Due to Adjustment in Estimate Change Due to Potential Violation of the PRA
Annual Number of Responses 2 0 0 0 -240 242
Annual Time Burden (Hours) 1,210 0 0 0 -79,561 80,771
Annual Cost Burden (Dollars) 10,000 0 0 0 -2,710,000 2,720,000
There is an adjustment decrease in the total estimated burden as currently identified in the OMB Inventory of Approved Burdens. This decrease is not due to any program changes. The adjustment decrease in burden from the most-recently approved ICR is primarily due to more accurate estimates of existing sources, which is based on the revised facility inventory developed in support of the August 2020 proposed revisions and discussed in the proposed supporting statement (EPA-HQ-OAR-2003-0156-0146). The decrease in operation and maintenance (O&M) costs, compared with the costs in the previous ICR, is due to the decrease in the estimate of existing sources. Additionally, this ICR corrects an error in the Agencys burden from the most-recently approved ICR. The most recently approved ICR applied estimated burden for preparation of annual summary reports and applied the burden to all affected facilities. However, the annual summary report is prepared by the Designated Administrator of a State or Federal Plan, which is not applicable to this NSPS. This ICR corrects the estimated burden by removing the annual summary report from the Agencys activities.
