Recycle and reuse waste management methods are the most famous methods and most effective methods using by the Malaysia contractor. Besides that, the main limitation for contractors to carry out waste management is financial problem. The contractors in Malaysia is still lack of knowledge and experience in construction waste management. Contractors carried out construction waste management because of environmental issue, since environmental issue is famous nowadays. Application of waste management is growing gradually in Malaysia.
