Paper Title:
Construction Waste Management: Current Status and Directions for Further Study
  Abstract

Nowadays, the increasing awareness of environmental impacts from construction wastes has led to the development of waste management as an important function of construction project management. Various theories and approaches for managing construction wastes have been developed in the existing research works and practices. The objective of this descriptive study is to analyze the current status of construction management and indicate the directions for future study. Based on a review of literature,this paper gives a framework of construction waste management from the view of fields, methods and measures in existing researches, and then it indicates several directions for further study, such as behavior and incentive scheme, assessment and evaluation system, multi-objective optimization the application of information technology and so on.
