The SWANA Landfill Operations Basics (LOB) training program is a basic course for landfill operations staff and is a good primer course for those professionals interested in acquiring their Manager of Landfill Operations (MOLO) Certification.

Issues covered include waste receiving and scale house operations, spotting and waste screening, equipment selection, operational and compaction issues and techniques, safety, special operations and littler control as well as environmental monitoring and control of landfill gas, leachate and surface runoff. The course includes a site visit and tour of an operating landfill if within easy distance and availability of the course teaching location.
