The LMOP Database contains key information about MSW landfills and LFG energy projects in the United States. Information in the LMOP Database is compiled from a variety of sources. Data received for inclusion in the LMOP Database are reviewed for reasonableness and are corroborated via other data sources when possible. Not all data are updated each year. While the Program strives to keep the information as updated and accurate as possible, the database is not exhaustive. The LMOP Database does not include data for every MSW landfill in the United States.
