Construction Waste Management

Track 16- Construction Waste Management

"Construction waste" means Waste generated by construction activities, such as scrap, damaged or spoiled materials, temporary and expendable construction materials, and aids that are not included in the finished project, packaging materials, and waste generated by the workforce. Construction waste management includes: to reduce the generation of construction waste; to maximise reuse and recycling and to reduce the intake of mixed construction waste at landfills. Management of construction waste is expensive and often presents unintended consequences. However, common sense suggests that failure to reduce, reuse and recycle societal wastes is unsustainable. Some waste generated in the process of construction can be eliminated. For example, durable modular metal form systems for use in concrete construction may be selected on the basis of being readily demountable and reusable on other projects, thus eliminating wood waste associated with formwork fabricated of plywood and dimensional lumber.
