Emerging economies are always faced with a dilemma between economic development and construction waste management. If not properly handled, the dilemma is bound to affect sustainable development of emerging economies. Therefore, developing circularity of construction waste in emerging economies is urgently demanded. This study aims to investigate how to develop circularity of construction waste in emerging economies. By searching hard around the globe, two emerging economies, Shenzhen and Suzhou in China have been found to achieve a success in developing circularity of construction waste with their rapid economic growth sustained. To reveal their respective strategies for their success to imply other emerging economies, a series of semi-structured interviews have been conducted with various stakeholders in Shenzhen and Suzhou. Therefore, the dataset includes a total of 24 interviews conducted in Shenzhen and Suzhou.
