The article presents the concept of managerial reporting for the waste disposal plants. Communities have discovered that integrated waste disposal plants can minimize costs and environmental effects and maximize recovery and conservation of energy and materials. Some waste cannot be successfully recycled, composed and converted to energy. In addition, some waste will always need to be landfilled. Four primary waste management paths are: recycling, composting, waste-to-energy and land disposal. Depending on the scope and complexity of waste cost management program, cost centers for any or all of the following: collection, waste transfer stations, waste transport, waste management facilities, support services might be established. The main goal of this article is the presentation of the essence of managerial accounting, the specificity of waste disposal plants actions and the author's concept of managerial accounting for a waste disposal plant. The author of this article prepared an application in spreadsheet (dashboard) for the managers of waste disposal plants.
