The issue of the reduction, reuse and recycle of urban solid waste is one of the most important and crucial research areas in the context of limiting the impact of human activities on the environment, especially within the Circular Economy context. The paper wants to show the current situation in terms of waste, highlighting their great potential as raw material for the production of products and components for construction, and presents some examples and case studies of applications.
