Abstract: In the old urban regions, major reconstruction operations are taking place on a fast scale throughout the world, which gives rise to large quantities of Construction and Demolition Waste (CDW). There is a gradual decline in available landfill space, while demand for quarry products is increasing. Because of its non-degradable features, CDW is a significant problem in many nations. Proper CDW management and recycling helps alleviate these issues. The contribution rates from various waste sources improve knowledge-based decision-making in the development of appropriate construction waste reduction strategy. This paper is focused on investigating the rate of recurrence and the seriousness of the contribution of waste sources that affect the well-being of the environment.
Keywords: Source of CDW, Non-Degradable Features, Waste Reduction, Knowledge-Based Decision-Making, Environmental Impacts.
