AbstractBenefits of conducting on-site sorting of construction waste, typically including increasing the rates of reuse and recycling, reducing the cost for waste transportation and disposal, prolonging the lifespan of landfills designed for receiving non-inert construction waste, and lessening the pollution resulted from the huge amount of construction waste, have been extensively investigated by previous studies. However, effective implementation of construction waste sorting requires a wide range of factors involving human beings, management, technology, environment and resources. So far, we know little about how to conduct effective construction waste sorting in China. This research therefore aims to identify the critical success factors (CSFs) for on-site sorting of construction waste in China. A set of methods including CSF approach, pilot study, questionnaire survey and face-to-face interview are adopted to facilitate the identification and analysis of the CSFs. Six factors including (1) manpower, (2) market for recycled materials, (3) waste sortability, (4) better management, (5) site space, (6) equipment for sorting of construction waste, are considered the CSFs for effective on-site sorting of construction waste in Shenzhen, China. These CSFs are of great significance both to researchers and industry practitioners. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
