Governments and contractors have different goals in handling construction and demolition waste (CDW), which makes it challenging to design CDW recycling networks. This paper develops a Stackelberg game model that governments can use to decide the optimal locations and types of CDW disposal facilities by considering the interests of both the government and contractors. The proposed model is proven to be efficient and practical through a series of real-world case studies. The findings elucidate and manage the different goals of governments and contractors and can help government design an optimal CDW recycling network in practice. Future research could tackle the problem of designing a multiperiod recycling network for managing CDW.
