Because governments tighten control on exploitation of construction sand, it becomes scarce. Accordingly, investors of construction work in the city are encouraged to use alternative materials.

Additionally, the Department of Industry and Trade was assigned to manage ash, slag, and plaster discharged from thermal power plants, chemical and fertilizer factories.

The Department should also increase information of the project to use these waste as alternative material in construction to help clear away scrapyard.
