Recycling is one of the methods which focus on handling construction waste. Promoting the benefits of the recycling method for construction waste can create a positive perception in using recycling for handling construction waste. The number of construction wastes genuinely increase due to the high demand for buildings and infrastructure works for development.

Disposing of construction waste to landfill involves large area and cause availability of land to deplete.

In this study, the objectives include determining the potential benefits of recycling methods for construction waste, identifying the best practices of recycling method and recognise the success factors of the recycling method for construction waste. Major findings in this research are regarding the benefits of the recycling method for construction waste.
