Abstract

Development of construction industry has led increase in generated construction waste and it also cause increase amount of waste in landfills. Weaknesses in implementation of the policy of solid waste reduction through 3R among contractor will cause unstainable in construction waste management which increase the generation of construction waste in landfills especially in islands. Land on the island is limited where the disposal activities very limited compared to the amount of waste entered. Solid waste reduction through 3R are the thrust 1 in National Solid Waste Management Policy. The objective of this paper is to discuss the implementation and constraints of the policy of solid waste reduction through 3R and the element to close gaps between the implementation of the policy of solid waste reduction through 3Rwith contractors in construction industry in Penang. The theoritical framework in this paper also decribes the concepts and approach that explain the currently phenomenon of implementation and constraints of policy of solid waste reduction through 3R in construction industry and also the element to achieve sustainability in construction waste management. Therefore, the element to close gaps should be emphazisedin order to reduce the construction waste through 3R to reach sustainable in construction waste management.
