Critical Management Measures Contributing to Construction Waste Management: Evidence From Construction Projects in China



To alleviate the generation of grave construction waste, it is imperative for China to minimize its construction waste; however, critical measures that are effective in managing construction waste have yet to be fully explored and understood. Through a literature review, semistructured interviews, questionnaire, and statistical analysis, this study investigates critical measures for the effective management of construction waste in China. The study identifies 16 critical management measures and further categorizes them into five components, including “ameliorate major stakeholders' awareness and behavior,” “improve regulatory environment,” “enhance onsite construction waste management,” “promote construction material use efficiency,” and “measures related to design-out waste and recycling.”
