Mohamad Sukri, Ni’ Matul Ain (2021) Smart waste dumpster / Ni’ Matul Ain Mohamad Sukri. [Student Project]


In Malaysia, construction industry is considered as a key economic stimulus. Therefore, the construction industry is the major generation of waste especially in high-rise building construction. Construction waste management faces an issue it is not properly handled since it has a detrimental influence on the environment, society, and ultimately the economy. The implementation of Industrialised Building System (IBS) is becoming increasingly important for construction industry due to its numerous benefits especially minimising the construction waste. Besides, Malaysian government has made an effort to emphasise the importance of managing construction and demolition (C&D) wastes in order to reduce environmental impacts, but recycling rates remain as low as 15%. The purpose of this study is to determine the problem of waste management in construction site, to propose an innovative sustainable built environment product to address the problem of waste collection at the construction site and to investigate the marketability potential of the Smart Waste Dumpster to prevent waste collection from overflowing. This study is based on a review of the literature from the previous research related to construction waste management in order to establish sustainable methods in handling construction waste. Furthermore, a simulation of the Smart Waste Dumpster is constructed using SketchUp software to demonstrate the concept and implementation of the Smart Waste Dumpster. Contractors throughout Malaysia have also been sent online surveys to assess the marketability of the innovative product. The respondents pointed out that the innovative product has a unique concept and should be marketed. In a nutshell, the Smart Waste Dumpster has a marketability potential as a recycling practice, a preventative measure against accidents caused by overflowing construction waste, and a benefit to the environment at the construction site.
