Construction is a booming industry in Hong Kong, in which subcontracting plays a key role. A major challenge the construction industry faces is that sustainable waste management is often difficult for subcontractors due to a variety of hurdles. This report identifies these hurdles that construction subcontractors, typically classified as small and medium enterprises (SMEs), experience when trying to practice sustainable construction, with a primary focus on waste management. The methodology used to collect data includes conducting interviews, surveys, and comparative analyses. The final recommendations of this project identify practical ways to encourage SMEs to more sustainably manage their waste and how the government, organizations, and contractors can assist SMEs.
