Development of the construction industry generated construction waste which can contribute towards environmental issues. Weaknesses of compliance in construction waste management especially in construction site have also contributed to the big issues of waste generated in landfills and illegal dumping area. This gives sign that construction projects are needed a systematic construction waste management. To date, a comprehensive criteria of construction waste management, particularly for construction project in developing countries such as Malaysia is still not systematically defined. Therefore, construction waste management needs further investigation. This paper aims to explain a concept model for systematic construction waste management in the Malaysian construction industry. The methodology of this paper is through literature and previous research focusing on current practices of construction waste management, the barriers of construction waste management implementation and the additional factor for implementing systematic construction waste management in order to develop a conceptual model. Findings from this study will help to find out the elements required to implement systematic construction waste management in Malaysian construction industry. This action seems significant to the participants in prioritizing construction waste management more systematically. The implementation also will increase the awareness and better understanding of the construction players of the importance of construction waste management in construction projects.
