Abstract: To explore the current situation of China's management of construction waste, person-interviews were conducted in Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, and Shenzhen of China. The result of the interview revealed four main problems: first, government lack of management; second, insufficient attention to the construction process; third, poor technical conditions; fourth, poor transportation management system. Based on these findings, this paper tries to propose a model to enhance the performance of the China's construction waste management. The model includes: implement the functions of government, promote technology innovation, increase the employees' awareness of environmental protection, minimization site waste, standardize construction waste management and establish incentive mechanism.
