Q122. Can a landfill ever stop reporting under the rule?

A122. A landfill can stop reporting under the rule if it emits less than 25,000 metric tons of CO2e for 5 consecutive years or less than 15,000 metric tons of CO2e for 3 consecutive years.  A landfill cannot stop reporting under the rule simply because it ceases operations (i.e. no longer accepts waste) since methane will continue to generate due to the waste in place even though new waste is not being added.
