The exponential growth of the construction sector has caused increased building waste. This is a scenario that has many adverse environmental, cost, manufacturing, time, social and economic impacts. In particular building schemes are the source of construction waste, due to increasing insufficient waste management practises. In the disposal of construction waste, efficient maintenance practises can also be underlined. This paper identifies waste management practises that reduce waste on site. 54 behaviours have been discovered in recent research publications. This research analyses various structural designs that contribute to waste reduction and includes management techniques to minimize building waste.The mapping methodology was used to assess the time of each practise.
