Waste management has become a very controversial issue and under the Act 672, Malaysian Government has been taking many initiatives to upgrade and enhance the waste management system in Malaysia in order to protect the environment and sustain the quality of life. However, the provoking question is what are the problems and difficulties faced and how are those problems handled by the concessionaire management? To answer these questions, we investigate the business management and accounting techniques used in providing the proposed solutions to the relevant management issues which we believe could leads to sustainability of a solid waste management company. The study presents the findings in which business management and accounting techniques practiced by FreshAir, as well as the level of awareness and public (household) perception on the solid waste and public cleansing management handled by FreshAir. The study proposed that to sustain and remain competitive, organizations must ensure that their resources are manage effectively, which can be achieved by adopting relevant business and management accounting techniques. Waste implies unwanted resources, which clearly create additional costs and environmental issues if they are not well managed. It is found that the primary purpose of having business management and accounting information is to help organizations make appropriate decisions, which serves as an integral part of strategic management. The management functions of planning, organizing, directing and controlling are in place to ensure that FreshAir is capable to attain its vision, mission and objectives and hence to survive in a competitive environment. Feedback from stakeholders is indeed important for FreshAir to further assist to protect the environment by having a proper and effective waste management system that will eventually bring benefit to all.
