of waste materials in road construction field. Many pieces of research have proven a success in reusing and recycling of some compositions of these waste materials in pavement structures and others are still undergoing comprehensive research
In particular, there is a re-use market for aggregates derived from CDW waste in roads, drainage and other construction projects. Technology for the separation and recovery of construction and demolition waste is well established, readily accessible and in general inexpensive.
construction industry can start being aware of and take advantage of the benefits of using waste and recycled materials. Studies have investigated the use of acceptable waste, recycled and reusable materials and methods.
