In my opinion, Construction Waste Management should be considered nowadays in order to ensure the sustainability of raw material for construction industry in Malaysia. In addition to the original question, should KKR/CIDB/JKR start to implement Construction Waste Management upon the start of the project for a sustainable Malaysia?

An excerpt taken from an article reported in the Star dated Friday, 20 Nov 2015 'Aiming for zero construction waste by 2030' states that under CITP, one of the key initiatives under Strategic Thrust #2 Environmental Sustainability in the five-year plan is to reduce irresponsible waste during construction (E5). As our nation is moving towards to be part of the smart cities movement by 2050, integrated waste management solutions would be made possible through the adoption of innovative technologies.

Good reading on initiatives taken by various countries around the world in managing their waste: http://www.waste360.com/generators/how-smart-cities-are-managing-solid-waste
