dc.description The aim of this research is to know how to quantify the waste material from demolition projects and to know if waste can provide economic benefits and can it derive a greater value. en_ZA
dc.description.abstract Construction and demolition waste has a major effect on the environment. The construction sector generates a variety of waste. The amount and the type of which is determined by the specific construction activities on site and the design and specification of buildings taking place (Begum A., Siwat C., Pereira J., and Jaafar A., 2007). This research is important since it will assist the construction industry to be aware of the waste material that needs to be recycled and reused and potentially deriving economic benefit from the waste streams avoiding dumping the waste into landfill. Construction and demolition projects produce massive amounts of waste and this waste pollutes the environment. Much of this construction waste may also end up dumped illegally or in landfill and which incurs high treatment cost (Jingkuang, L., Yousong, W. and Yiyong, L., 2012). The sub problems that need to be addressed by this research are the environmental problems, management waste process and waste stream and quantification. For this research, we will be looking at the different types of waste, quantification of waste and business viability of waste processing. en_ZA
