- Structural waste: Where is away?
Green and sustainable design is growing in prominence and popularity. National governments are active in promoting recycling and reducing the amount of waste going to landfill.
This guide addresses the opportunities at the design stage of a project for minimising the generation of waste by the use of recycled components and materials in buildings. It reviews current experience of designing with recycling in mind, the processes by which components and material can be reclaimed and the opportunities for specifying them in construction work. Using existing resources in a more responsible way is central to this design guide.

In , the Japanese government established the Recycling Law, which required relevant ministries to nominate materials that they must control and encourage the reuse and recycling of those materials under their responsibility.
The former Ministry of Construction MOC now named Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, Road nominated demolished concrete, soil, asphalt concrete, and wood as construction by-products. It also elaborates the insufficient institutional capacity to support 3R measures which is a common issue for all developing countries to address. Waste management policy making is relatively decentralized in Hong Kong.
Statutory non-government authorities such as the Legislative Councils, the Housing Authority and task oriented non-statutory bodies such as the Advisory Council on the Environment and Waste Reduction Committee all have a role to play in waste policy formulation and implementation. There is however, no public body with the remit to systematically formulate and implement waste and environmental education policies in Hong Kong. Urban environmental management in the construction industry has been growing rapidly in some countries in Asia.
Attaining towards sustainable development, some countries take efforts towards practicing environmental management system EMS.
Keyword: Deconstruction Waste (Building)
Construction industry has one of the highest resource uses and responsible for waste pollution. Another case in Hong Kong where the local industry has been promoting measures such as establishing waste management plans, reduction and recycling of construction and demolition wastes, providing in-house training on environmental management, and legal measures on environmental protection.
Eguchi et al. The findings obtained are summarized as follows: recycled concrete aggregate produced by a simple assembled system of equipment and improvement of recycling ratio of the concrete blocks; performance quality of parameters such as replacement ratio, compressive strength and elastic modulus, among others has relative quality value. For example, clients can lay down environmental criteria and so determine the conditions under which projects are implemented. In doing this way clients can influence other key players to facilitate 3R; designers can reduce resources used in construction, aid site waste minimization through appropriate design, and influence the use of reclaimed materials; constructors can minimize the volume arising on site, use reclaimed materials in the works and influence wastage caused by poor materials handling; and suppliers can encourage the use of reclaimed materials and influence wastage caused by excessive packaging.
Safe, healthy and sustainable demolition
In Indonesia, construction managers, client, consultants, suppliers, foremen and laborers are the stakeholders involved in construction industry. Commitment and involvement of all project participants are highlighted for waste minimization. Also, it noted that all construction personnel need to be kept informed of construction progress such as project time and cost targets using information display for construction monitoring purposes Alwi, et al.
According to Rameezdeen , key stakeholders in the construction industry can be categorized into direct such as client, consultant and contractor and indirect stakeholders finance institutions, material manufacturers and suppliers. Client initiates the project; finances the project; and directly and indirectly monitors the progress, time, cost, and quality and command any variations to the design during design and construction phase.
Another type is public sector, such as Central government, Ministry Highway, Health, and Housing , Department Authorities, Local government authorities, among others.
In Hong Kong, key stakeholders involved in the construction industry are director, engineers, quality manager, site manager, safety manager, environmental manager, contracts manager and workers. Many construction industries are now just starting to realize the importance of environmental management due to increasing pressure from environmental violations and governmental regulations.
Japan uses the indicator resource productivity of all general solid waste. This is defined as the ratio of the GDP and the direct material input. Another indicator considered by Japan is the amount of final disposal amount. These indicators along with targets are used for policy making purposes.
Structural waste: Where is away?
These are: salaries, value added, expenditure, services, raw materials consumed, value of work done and value of contract. However information compiled from some countries in different sub-regions in Asia and different stages of development, presented in this paper, provides examples and baseline data on current status in terms of policy and institutional, technological, and practical aspects. This is expected to assist the policy and decision makers in the region by identifying challenges and opportunities in order to develop specific strategies from the application of 3R principles based on specific conditions of Asian countries.
The construction sector may be committed to reducing waste in their management by applying waste minimization strategies and may implement efficiently enabling to achieve sustainable development in respective countries in Asia. London, UK. Malaysia Waste in the Indonesian Construction Project.
