Abstract: This examination researches the appropriateness of waste materials i.e., sawdust and rice husk as a filler materials in bitumen. The waste materials (Rice husk and Saw dust) were tried to decide its appropriateness in the bitumen asphalt. The suggestions are surmised upon the Marshall and volumetric properties. Reuse of waste item is perfect to lessen contamination, since transfer is diminished or dispensed with. In this examination, Rice husk and saw residue waste was ground utilizing a pounding ball to shape a fine powder. It was then sieved in 300μm. At the research center, Rice husk and saw residue were blended in with bitumen to supplant 5%, 10%, and 15% of the all the weight ,while 0% addressed the control test. The Penetration test, Softening Point test, Flash and Fire Point test, Viscosity test, Ductility test and Marshall Stability test were looked into in this examination on the mix degree on bitumen in with rice husk and saw dust. Rice husk and Sawdust were incorporated into bitumen and perfect rate is gotten the chance to improve the presentation of bitumen.
