Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP)

Landfill Technical Data

The LMOP Landfill and Landfill Gas Energy Project Database (LMOP Database) contains information such as physical address, latitude and longitude, owner/operator organization, operational status, year opened, actual or expected closure year, design capacity, amount of waste in place, gas collection system status and landfill gas (LFG) collected amount for more than 2,400 municipal solid waste landfills. For landfills that report under EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Reporting Program (GHGRP), LMOP cross-references that dataset by including GHGRP’s 7-digit Facility Identifier.

The Excel files provided here include two full lists of all landfills in the LMOP Database (one with and one without project-level data), as well as a separate file of only those landfills categorized by LMOP as "candidates" for LFG energy project development.

Landfills identified in LMOP Database as "candidates" for LFG energy

  • Candidate landfills (XLSX)(3 pp, 117 K) – LMOP defines a candidate landfill as one that is accepting waste or has been closed for five years or less, has at least one million tons of waste, and does not have an operational, under-construction, or planned project; candidate landfills can also be designated based on actual interest in the site.
