Material waste management in construction sites in Imo state has become a major environmental issue in recent years. Of particular concern is the increasing amount of construction and demolition waste being dumped at landfill sites. Greater consideration must be given to waste generation and management at the planning stage of a building material wastes generated at building construction sites in Imo state were analyzed. Two building construction sites were selected for the study by regular site visits. Timber boards used for formwork were the most significant waste type, followed by waste derived from wet trades which can be reduced by using precast and system form works. The major causes of waste were improper preparation and handling, misuse and incorrect processing. In general, on-site waste sorting should also be carried out. Appropriate planning, including a detailed waste management plan, is essential for effective waste reduction. Waste indices calculated from waste monitoring data should be publicized and used for future material waste estimations. ...
