The study presents the quantity and quality of demolition waste coming from demolition sites in Bucharest. Analyzes of waste were made in order to explore the possibilities of reusing them as components of building materials . It is shown that a large amount of waste from building demolition is a reusable material. Basic oxides of calcium and magnesium in waste can adversely impact soil if deposited directly for a long time, by changing the soil pH and by diluting humus . For a better evaluation of the waste samples, the carbonate concentration was studied. Demolition waste have a large quantity of inorganic components, if the waste is deposited at the limit of the town, it can affect the productive soil for any type of crop by reducing soil fertility. Results demonstrate that the recycling of demolition waste is useful for the construction industry.
