AbstractThe management of construction and demolition materials is a problem being tackled by many government agencies worldwide. The problem is particularly acute in Hong Kong due to rapid economic development and urban renewal over recent decades, and the situation is aggravated by the dense population on a small plot of usable land. The Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government is implementing many initiatives in both public and private sectors to handle the ever-increasing municipal problem. Some of these strategies and practice are reviewed in this paper. The effectiveness of these initiatives is being closely monitored by the HKSAR government and adjustments are being made from time to time as required.
