AbstractUsing different commercial and residential construction jobsites within California and Arizona, this project highlighted the different methods of waste management used within the construction industry and steps to become a zero-waste industry. This paper analyzes the ground view perspective of industry professionals utilizing the current methods in place for waste management in the construction industry. The project differentiates the policies for Construction and Demolition debris (C&D) recycling and waste management between the two states to better form a plan for an Arizona waste management plan. Utilizing the methods and standards from construction sites, interviews, and common themes from industry professionals (specifically, project managers), this project outlines potential strategies to improve current waste management methods in both California and Arizona. Finally, the paper provides recommendations to state and local municipalities on how best to establish waste management techniques that benefit both the environment and industry professionals.
