Landfill Methane Outreach Program (LMOP)

Project and Landfill Data by State

LMOP tracks key data for landfill gas (LFG) energy projects and municipal solid waste (MSW) landfills in the United States. The LMOP Landfill and Landfill Gas Energy Database (LMOP Database) contains information about projects in various stages such as planning, under-construction, operational and shutdown, and is also a data repository for more than 2,500 MSW landfills.

Select a state on the map or in the table below to access an Excel file of landfills and projects located in that state. This map also provides a snapshot of the operational project and candidate landfill counts by state.
