Improving Construction Waste Management in Crete: The Way Forward.
It is difficult to provide exact numbers of construction waste produced on a typical construction site in Crete, Greece. Still, it is estimated that it is as much as 30-35 per cent of the overall weight of building materials delivered to a building site.

How to Use this Guide.
The Construction Waste Management in Crete guide by ARENCOS, can be used on-site by contractors, project managers and supervisors, all of whom can establish effective waste management on-site by using best and innovative practices and methods. It is designed to meet the needs of residential and commercial buildings towards a circular economy and includes examples of how teams and/or working groups can work together to ensure a reliable and practical waste management strategy.
The worker groups are described as:
Group 1: Those who are involved in the construction site for a long-term period and produce a significant amount of waste. It is considered as the group that has direct responsibility for managing the waste, for example, the project supervisor and/or the contractor.
Group 2: Those who produce waste but do not have direct responsibility for it, for example, contractors who may only be on site for a limited period of time to install a piece of special equipment or professionals responsible to fulfill specific project requirements.
