ABSTRACT
Having in mind great impact that building industry causes to the environment throughout building life cycle, construction and demolition (C&D) waste management is significant part of overall waste management program of local society. It is of great importance to project possible outcomes of local building stock at final stage of its life cycle, regarding possibilities for reusing or recycling of certain parts of buildings. This paper deals with unsolved issue of C&D waste management in Serbia, where with lack of regulation mechanism, generated waste mostly ends up in a city landfill. On the other hand, taking into account significant age of greatest part of Serbian building stock, it is obvious that it is of great importance to perceive overall amount and content of possible waste that Serbia has to deal with. In that respect, relevant portion of national housing typology is presented, reviewing typical housing types, quantities and structure of building materials used.
