A quantitative survey method was adopted for this study to obtain data from construction project-based organizations managers in Abuja, Nigeria. A total of 310 questionnaires were personally distributed and out of which 178 were returned and used for data analysis, yielded 57.4 percent response rate. Structural equation model. Partial least square (PLS-SEM 2,0) was used for data analyses. The Cronbach’s Alpha value for the variables ranging from 0.566 to 0.903 indicates a very good reliability of the research instrument. It was found that Formalization is significantly related to construction waste management with the t- value of 5.474, government policy is significantly related to construction waste management with the t-value of 15.283 10% significant level. It was also found that government policy moderates the relationship between the formalization and construction waste management with t- value of 2.603. Both theoretical and practical contributions have been made by this study- the theoretical contribution of this study is the extension of the existing literature about formalization – construction waste management and government policy – construction waste management. The practical contribution is that the extent of formalization is high on construction waste management among construction organizations.
