Management of large debris caused by building demolition necessitates a multi-faceted approach to deal with emerging side effects.‎ Because of emerging global challenges, such as population growth, and renovation ‎projects, a dynamic models need to be planned and controlled. One of the key drivers ‎of this management is determining the appropriate path for transporting waste and debris. Debris management by using the linear dynamic transportation model (LDT) is conducted to deal with the unexpected amount of debris and other solid waste. This sudden and unexpected large ‎amount of solid waste might be produced by natural disasters or by man-made catastrophes either ‎directly or indirectly. By computing several parameters in certain zones, a sensitivity ‎analysis of each parameter is performed to obtain an optimal model for disaster debris ‎management. Based on disaster debris volume, the model gave us an optimal explanation of ‎the debris disposal by locals. According to the estimated parameters and conditions, ‎significant findings appear by identifying the optimal dynamic transportation path of the debris ‎truck. Thus, by applying the LDT model, the results showed that the efficiency/inefficiency of road types and networks clearly affect the handling of debris.
