Abstract— Industrial activities in India are associated with significant amounts of non-biodegradable solid waste, waste plastic being among the most prominent. Now a days polymer fiber disposal is an issue of major concern worldwide because plastic does not decay and therefore increasing in volume. A way to tackle this problem is to utilize this waste plastic. This alternative not only reduces the quantity of plastic waste but also conserves both material and energy and provides a comparatively simple way to make a considerable reduction in the overall volume of plastic waste. Disposal of polymer fiber in environment is a big problem due to its very low biodegradability and presence in large quantities. Plastic recycling was taking place on a significant scale in an India. As much as 60 % of both industrial and urban plastic waste is recycled which obtained from various sources. In recent time’s use of such, glass fiber were studied as addition of a part of the conventional aggregates of concrete. This study involved experiments and tests to determine the efficiency of additions of waste plastic in the production of concrete. Waste plastic was used as a partial replacement for sand by 0%, 1%, 2%, 3%, and 4% with concrete mixtures. The concrete cubes were tested at room temperature. These tests include performing slump & compressive strength. This study insures that reusing waste plastic as a substitute for fine aggregate in concrete gives a good result to reduce the cost of materials and solve solid waste disposal problem.
