Description of the project

Construction and Demolition Waste Management system to provide an assessment of the impacts arising from the generation of waste materials during demolition, construction and operational phase of the proposed development.

Waste is unusable and unwanted material, and it is also called rubbish, trash, garbage. Waste as a material by-product of human or industrial activity that has no residual value. Waste is any material which is no longer used in a normal commercial cycle or chain of utility as the holder has a plan to throw away materials. Construction waste as the bye-products generated and removed from construction, renovation and demolition sites of building and civil engineering structures. Construction waste has not only economic impact but also it has negative environmental impact. Construction and demolition waste has environmental impact and risks to human health.

“Construction and Demolition Waste Management” System is a software with 3 main modules that is designed specifically to make waste management for large populated areas maximally effective and eco-friendly. It’s a great tool for the tasks of huge scale. It gathers data automatically and allows to compute optimal logistics and the ways to minimize rates, to make multivariate prognoses for years ahead in real time, plan out changes and make better decisions. The system has interface for a day-to-day industry functioning too. It carries out all the deals and payments, files reports, takes and distributes orders etc. “Construction and Demolition Waste Management” System provides full automation of the whole Construction and Demolition Waste Management cycle.

The Malaysia construction industry generates a large quantity of construction and demolition waste nowadays. It is important to study and determine the ways to provide a practical guide for the professional in the building industry about handling the demolition waste. In general, demolition defined as tearing down or wrecking of structural work or architectural work of the building and other infrastructures work such as road, bridge and etc. It’s a common misconception that demolition is nothing more than taking down a structure and carrying the debris to a landfill. On many projects, 80-90% of the structure is kept for reuse or recycling which help the owner to save cost. Demolition contractors required a lot of knowledge and experience to minimize the impact of demolition work to the existing surrounding area. The waste assessment examines the quantity, quality and timing of potential sources of waste which will arise from the construction and operation. While construction and demolition waste includes most wastes arising from the construction. Where unacceptable waste impacts are identified, appropriate mitigation measures are recommended. Disposal options are outlined for each type of waste, and the responsibilities for disposal or recycling discussed.

Malaysia is witnessing a rapid development of its urban centers, and where construction and demolition (C&D) waste generation is increasing proportionally with the new construction industry development. Under current construction methods, with minimal recycling, with most C&D waste is dumped to the landfill. Preventing and managing waste is at the heart of sustainable development. Waste implies unnecessary depletion of natural resources, unnecessary costs, and environmental damage. Sustainable waste management is about using resources more efficiently. Construction and Demolition (C&D) Waste Monitoring System waste management is a major challenge for Malaysia to address in the light of Vision 2020 which lays out the direction for Malaysia to become a fully developed nation by 2020. The National Vision Policy (NVP), developed to meet the challenges posed by Vision 2020, incorporates key strategies of the New Economic Policy (NEP) and the National Development Policy (NDP). A key thrust of the NVP is pursuing environmentally sustainable development to reinforce long-term growth, which presents a challenge to established policies and practices in the rapidly expanding area of Construction and Demolition (C&D) Waste Monitoring System.

The Problem

Construction site waste contributes to the large quantities of construction and demolition (C&D) waste that are generated by the construction industry every year. In the 21st century, as we become more attuned to addressing climate change, Now we can identify the amount of carbon emissions associated with construction waste items recycling and disposal and what we can do to reduce our impact on the environment — our carbon footprint. Our many daily activities, such as using natural gas to heat buildings or burning gasoline to drive vehicles, release carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases (GHGs) into the atmosphere. The resulting increased buildup of GHGs in the atmosphere is causing the earth’s climate to change, producing many impacts including higher (and lower) temperatures, less snow and rainfall and rising sea level.

The Strategy

A waste management plan can be described as a construction project related plan that gives provisions for the prevention, separation, salvage, reuse, recycling and disposal of C&D waste. The ultimate goal of a waste management plan is to reduce the amount of C&D waste destined for landfill to an absolute minimum. A waste management plan encourages resource efficiency and helps internalize the environmental externalities related to building construction. A waste management plan presents an opportunity for a building owner and his team to demonstrate responsibility toward the environment by using a green approach to construction. Furthermore, the plan helps the building contractor identify opportunities from waste rather than to have to deal with it as a daily problem on site. Most importantly, a waste management plan encourages the client team to demand, help develop and comply with waste reduction targets for the project and also serves as a guideline for the contractor’s waste management activities on site. 9.2 Elements of a waste management plan Project planning is very important because it allows the opportunity to define a problem, assess possible solutions, proceed to implement the final option and make provision for evaluation at the end. It is unthinkable to commence a construction project without going through this process. For the same reason, waste management on construction sites should be planned before construction activities begin (in order to avoid dealing with waste as a problem). A waste management plan does not have to be complicated; in fact it need not even be a long document. It simply needs to be concise, comprehensive and practical for easy interpretation and implementation on site. A good waste management plan will contain the following components:
