The intense urbanization resulting from the world populations growth makes the construction industry responsible for causing extensive environmental damage, given the vast generation of CD&waste. Considering the management of CD&waste in Brazil and Portugal, both have a deficit in preventing dynamic interactions between the factors inherent to the management. The implementation of management strategies drives the economy and social sustainability. Therefore, thein order to analyze the CD&waste management methods in Brazil and Portugal, this study was based on a thorough investigation of the theme in a municipality in each country, considered as tourist areas. With the objective of filling in the gaps related to the legal and regulatory instruments created to national and word governmental control about CD&waste management. The methodology used for the development was a bibliographic review with primary and secondary data from technical and scientific sources, in addition to interviews with those responsible for the inspection, execution of works and environmental management of the municipalities from Santa Fé do Sul, Brazil and Covilhã, Portugal, followed by field research. As a result, it can be mentioned that the municipality of Santa Fé do Sul has greater control over the management of CD&waste, the reality of the country that has a more developed CD&waste reinsertion system compared to Portugal, which in the municipality of Covilhã, has no practices of CD&waste reusing management. The reinforcement of government supervision and the implementation of economic incentives are strategies for improvement and insertion in the concept of sustainable cities and circular economy.
