In its urban renewal policy, the Beninese government has initiated large construction and redevelopment projects in the city of Cotonou. In order to make room for various projects and carry them out successfully, old administrative buildings are being demolished. These demolition operations generate a considerable amount of rubble that needs to be managed to avoid the negative impacts these wastes have on the environment. A qualitative approach has been used to explore the different valorization approaches used for better management of rubble in the city of Cotonou. Indeed, demolition rubble is of significant use to resident who repurpose them in construction, as well as to industries interested in scrap metal from the rubble. The rubble sector attracts stakeholders of different statuses (public and private sectors) who play various roles leading to the valorization and recycling of demolition rubble. The absence of legislation that regulates the sectors in Benin means that it is dominated by the informal sector. However, it constitutes an economic source for the stakeholders involved in its management. The practice of reusing demolition rubbles is very high in the city of Cotonou, resulting in an increasingly high demand. This demand promotes a circular management of this rubble and could minimize the consequences it could have on environment.
