    Malaysia’s construction industry had shown rapid growth in the last decade. The recent construction industry is undertaking pressure to practice waste minimization due to the over-production of waste. This study focused on identifying an effective waste management plan by proposing a framework design for construction waste minimization. A mixed-method approach, involving qualitative and quantitative research, has been adopted as the mean of data collection by online questionnaire surveys. Factors such as the enforcement of regulations, recycling market development, operatives’ consciousness and advanced methods were included. The data analysis was conducted through a combination of reliability analysis, Kruskal-Wallis test and descriptive statistics analysis by adopting Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) version 25. Key findings which emerged from this study revealed that the major construction waste was caused by conventional way of construction and improper site management. The most potential waste minimization strategies included Site Waste Management Plan (SWMP), Industrialized Building System (IBS) and Building Information Modelling (BIM). The framework presents a coherent approach for achieving sustainable waste minimization in construction companies.
