The manufacture of plastic is rising at a faster rate. The ecology is polluted by this plastic trash,
making disposal more difficult. Burning plastic bottles emits toxic fumes and often takes hundreds of years for the plastic to degrade. By substituting this plastic waste for aggregates, the building industry may take action to address this problem. by replacing fine aggregate with waste plastic, a green solution. Waste plastic is increasing daily as time goes on since most of the plastic that humans use is not biodegradable. To examine the mechanical characteristics of concrete using waste plastic in place of conventional fine-sized aggregate, several laboratory investigations were carried out. Plastic waste was used to create concrete in varied ratios of 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10%. This study ensures that employing recycled waste plastic in place of traditional fine-sized aggregate in concrete is a sound method to lower material costs and address some of the concerns with solid waste that plastics cause.
