Abstract
There is a wide range of measures that can be implemented in the building construction sites and not all of them are equally effective in reducing construction and demolition (C&D) waste generation or improving its management. Therefore, this research carries out a survey conducted among the construction stakeholders in order to evaluate the use and effectiveness of 13 measures aiming to promote the minimization and correct management of C&D waste. In addition, this study identifies the most suitable types of building constructions to implement these measures and the advantages and drawbacks of their performance in a building construction project. Results of this study show that among the highly effective measures are the contract of suppliers managing the waste, the distribution of small containers in the working areas and the periodic checks, although only 50 % of respondents usually implement this measure in their works.
