Abstract: The outline of this research paper is the usage of waste plastic materials in concrete mixes. Due to modernization with rapidly growing industries, urbanization all over the world has produces large amount of plastic waste. This produces enormous measure of plastic waste because of convey sacks which are utilized for pressing, conveying vegetables and pet jugs which are utilized for drinking reason, those makes a noteworthy ecological issues in light of the fact that, the plastic material will take billions of years to decay totally. The huge amount of plastic transfer waste may cause land contamination and water body gets defiled. The plastic waste is non degradable which is used in concrete to study the behavior of concrete with various percentages (0.0%, 0.2%, 0.4%, 0.6%, 0.8%, 1.0%) of synthetic polymers (carry bags) and thermoplastic polymer resign (pet bottles). The concrete strengths are Compressive strength & Split tensile strengths of various concrete specimens were tested.
