Deepak K. Singh, Shashank Kothari, Dharampal S. Kandari.

Abstract
There has been a massive growth in construction and demolition activities in the past two
decades due to emergence of new technologies and changing economic climate in India. Construction and
demolition (C&D) waste is produced when a construction/demolition activity is undertaken, such as, roa d
construction, bridge construction, construction of a fly over etc. C&D waste forms a chief percentage of the
solid waste produced in most municipalities of big cities in India. C&D waste mostly contains active and non -
active/biodegradable material for example: concrete, plaster, metal, wood, plastics etc. A fragment of this
material joins the municipal stream polluting the water bodies. These are heavy wastes which have high density,
they are generally bulky and inhabit substantial storage space by the ro adside or in the communal waste
bin/container. Thereafter, it finds its way into surface drains, choking them. It constitutes about 10-20 % of the
municipal solid waste. Therefore, the proper management of C&D waste is important and also easy since most
of the materials are easily recyclable and reusable. In this study the C&D materials such as sanitary ware,
concrete rubble and tiles were acquired from various sites in Dehradun, India and their replacement in
conventional concrete is studied.

Key words: Construction and demolition (C&D) waste, construction materials, sustainable, recyclable, reusable, solid waste, Dehradun .
